THE present series, entitled ‘‘Smithsonian Miscellaneous Col- 
lections,” is intended to embrace all the publications issued directly 
by the Smithsonian Institution in octavo form ; those in quarto con- 
stituting the “Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge.” The 
quarto series includes memoirs embracing the records of extended 
original investigations and researches resulting in what are be- 
lieved to be new truths, and constituting positive additions to the 
sum of human knowledge. The octavo series is designed to con- 
tain reports on the present state of our knowledge of particular 
branches of science : instructions for collecting and digesting facts 
and materials for research: lists and synopses of species of the 
organic and inorganic world: museum catalogues: reports of ex- 
plorations : aids to bibliographical investigations, etc., generally 
prepared at the express request of the Institution, and at its 

The position of a work in one or the other of the two series will 
sometimes depend upon whether the required illustrations can be 
presented more conveniently in the quarto or the octavo form. 

In the Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge, as well as in the 
present series, each article is separately paged and indexed, and 
the actual date of its publication is that given on its special title- 
page, and not that of the volume in which it is placed. In many 
cases, works have been published, and largely distributed, years 
before their combination into volumes. 

While due care is taken on the part of the Smithsonian Insti- 
tution to insure a proper standard of excellence in its publications, 
it will be readily understood that it cannot hold itself responsible 
for the facts and conclusions of the authors, as it is impossible in 
most cases to verify their statements.

DECEMBER, 1872. 


THE opportunity afforded by Mr. Carpenter’s visit in 1859-60 
to the United States, was embraced to secure his services in 
naming and arranging the shells collected by the United States 
Exploring Expedition and other parties on the Pacific Coast of 
North America. Mr. Carpenter, having previoysly presented to 
the British Association a report on the state of knowledge in 
regard to the mollusks of the west coast of North America, 
embodied the additional information which he obtained, chiefly 
through the Smithsonian Institution, in a second report to the 
same Association ; and now, in order to facilitate the study of 
this class of animals by the American student, this work is re- 
published with supplementary papers, from stereotype copies of 
the original pages.

Arter the publication of my first ‘Report on the present state 
of our knowledge with regard to the Mollusca of the West Coast 
of North America,” undertaken at the request of the British 
Association for the Advancement of Science, and printed in their 
Report for 1856, I visited America in order to arrange the first 
duplicate series of the great Reigen Collection of Mazatlan Shells 
which I had presented to the New York State Museum at 
Albany. It was one of the special objects of my visit to ex- 
amine the types of previously described species in the United 
States, that I might compare them with those known in England. 
Having visited Washington to examine the types of the United 
States Exploring Expedition (Wilkes’), I was requested to spend 
the winter of 1859-60 in unpacking and arranging the shells 
belonging to the National Museum under its charge; and after 
my return to England I received from time to time the various 
collections sent to the Institution from the West Coast as they 
arrived; all of these were duly compared with the types in the 
Cumingian and other British collections. 

Being thus in a position to correct a large number of unavoid- 
able errors in my first Report, and to add a great deal of fresh 
information from American sources (chiefly obtained through the 
Smithsonian Institution), I was requested by the British Asso- 
ciation to embody the material in a “Supplementary Report” on 
the same subject as the first. Knowing how difficult it is for 
American students to obtain access to serial publications, I ob- 
tained permission, in behalf of the Institution, to stereotype this 
second report, and the papers connected with it, which appeared 
in the ‘Proceedings of the Zoological Society,” the “ Annals and 
Magazine of Natural History,” and the “Journal de Conchy- 



The present volume consists, therefore, of a reprint from these 
stereotype plates, with the original paging at the top, and the 
Smithsonian paging at the bottom; and of a general index of 

The index was prepared (at the expense of the Smithsonian 
Institution) by Mr. E. Taylor, Student at McGill College. It 
includes not only the present volume but all my previous English 
publications on the subject, of which the principal are the First 
British Association Report and the British Museum Mazatlan 
Catalogue. All references to these works not reprinted have 
the page-number prefixed by a Roman Capital (O to X), by 
which they can be at once distinguished from the simple num- 
bers which refer to the foot-page in this volume. Students who 
want an index to the First Report will fix the eye on the initial 
O; to the Mazatlan Catalogue on P. 

In an accompanying list will be found an enumeration of all 
my papers published in European journals relative to American 
conchology, and for the most part reprinted in the present col- 
lection. In this, however, is not included any of the contribu- 
tions to American serials, as the Journal of the Academy of 
Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, the Proceedings of the Cali- 
fornia Academy, or the American Journal of Conchology. 

My principal object in the preparation of these works has been 
to make out and compare the writings of previous naturalists, so 
that it might be possible for succeeding students to begin where 
I left off, without being obliged to waste so large an amount of 
time as I have been compelled to do in analyzing the (often inac- 
curate) work of their predecessors. 

As the work of previous writers, whether satisfactory or other- 
wise, is duly tabulated in my Reports, so that others may judge 
of its value as well as J, it is not fair (as is often done) to quote 
from these Reports as on my authority. I was simply the his- 
torian, not the original writer. In the First Report I was a 
novice in the scientific world, and rarely ventured on criticisms ; 
in the second, I allowed myself with more confidence to state 
my own conclusions, because I found that others had not enjoyed 
the remarkable facilities of comparing types which fell to my lot, 
and which (in many instances) cannot be renewed. Since that 
time, Nuttall, Gould, Rich, Judge Cooper, and especially Hugh 
Cuming, have been called to another world; their collections 


have changed hands, and fresh causes of error have crept in. The 
present condition of the Cumingian Collection has been faithfully 
described by Dr. Gray in the Proceedings of the Zoological So- 
ciety; and those who will take the trouble to compare his review 
of the Calyptrxide, after the destruction of original labels conse- 
quent on Reeve’s Monograph, with that which I gave in the 
Mazatlan Catalogue, while these labels were still fixed to the 
shells, will appreciate the advantages which I formerly enjoyed. 

Readers who may discover any uncorrected errors in this 
volume, or in any of my other works, are urgently requested 
to apprise me of them (Box 1934 P. O., Montreal, C. E.), in 
order that they may be corrected in the Report of the Mollusca 
which Prof. Whitney has requested me to prepare for the Cali- 
fornia Geological Survey.

Supplementary Report on the Present State of our Knowledge with 
regard to the Mollusca of the West Coast of North America, By 
Puitre P. CARPENTER, B.A., Ph.D.* 

THE object of the present Report is (1) to correct the errors which have been 
observed in the first Report (‘‘ Report &c.” 1856, pp. 159-368); and (2) to 
point out the fresh sources of information which have been rendered avail- 
able since that period. For convenience of comparison, the paragraph num- _ 
bers refer to those of the first Report in the corrections, and are continued 

from them in the addenda. In the bibliographical portion, the criticisms by 
the writer of this Report are inserted in [ ]; a distinction not always attended 
to in the former volume, in consequence of which erroneous names and local- 
ities have been attributed to the reviewer, instead of to the authors quoted. 

22. Introduction —(Line 4 from bottom.) The river Willamette flows 
northwards (Gld.). : 

23. Early Writers ——The only Californian shell described by Linnzeus is 
Turbo sanguineus,=T. coccineus, Desh.; v. Hanl. Ips. Linn. Conch. p. 334. 
The types are too much worn to decide whether they came from the North 
Pacific or (as is more probable) from the Mediterranean. In Gmelin’s edition 
of Linneus, Zipsix, 1788-1790,—which is, in great measure, a translation 
from a German work published a few years in advance [teste Hanley],—the 
following species are assigned to the ‘“ West Coast of America,” probably on 
the authority of Martyn :——page 3529, Murex foliatus : 3702, Patella pecten : 
3712, Patella calyptra. The last two seem exotic. 

Many West-coast species had found their way into English collections 
during the last century, at a much earlier date than was expected at the time 
of the first Report. They were mainly derived from the voyages of Capt. 
Cook and other circumnavigators. Capt. Cook was accompanied by Solander, 
as naturalist, at the instance of Sir Joseph Banks. His shells passed into 
the hands of Mr. Humphrey, the dealer, at whose death the remainder, a 
thousand boxes, became the property of the elder Sowerby, and (in part) of 
Mawe [teste Hanley]. They took their chance of being figured or described 
by the early conchologists. The localities are (as might be expected) often 
interchanged, but have been quoted by later authors, who have not thought 
fit to avail themselves of more correct sources of information. 

The first accurate delineations are by Thomas Martyn, in his ‘ Universal 
Conchologist,’ London, 1784. Those who only know this book from Chenu’s 
reprint, Paris, 1845, can form but a poor idea of the exquisite beauty of the 
original work. Of this, very few copies are accessible ; but it may be consulted 
at the British Museum, the Royal Society, and the Royal College of Surgeons.

Many of the figures of Martyn were reproduced by Chemnitz, in his com- 
prehensive continuation of Martini’s ‘ Conchylien Cabinet,’ 1780-1795. Un- 
happily, though often quoted for generic and specific names, he did not adopt 
the binomial nomenclature (except in vol. xi.), but described each shell in 
two or more words, as it happened. For this reason he appears to have had 
no scruple in altering previous designations, as follows :— 


1538, 1539. Murex Purpura alata, “Mart. Conch. Un. vol. ii. f. 66, Leaved Purpura 
foliata from N.W. coast of America.” 

1634 .. Murex Glomus cereus, seu Cereus conglomeratus, “ Mart. vol. ii. f. 45,

assigned to the Friendly Is. =M. argus, var. y. Gmel., teste Dillw. 
vol. ii. p. 735. | 

The assignment of West American species to New Zealand, begun by 
Martyn, has continued a source of error to the present time. It occurs in 
Dr. Gould’s ‘Exploring Expedition Mollusca,’ in the Cumingian Collection, 
and in the British Museum. 

In the ‘Travels in New Zealand,’ by Ernest Dieffenbach, M.D.. London, 
1848, vol. i. pp. 228-264, is given a “Catalogue of the Species of Mollusca 
and their Shells, which have hitherto been recorded as found at New Zealand,” 
&e., byJ.E. Gray. The author premises that some of the species [marked *] 



assigned by the older writers may be found erroneously placed. The follow- 

ing are probably from the West coast of North America, with the synonymy 

as understood by Dr. Gray :—

But the first authentic information on the molluscs of the North-western 
coast is given in the ‘ Voyage Round the World, but more particularly to the 
N.W. Coast of America,’ by Capt. George Dixon, London, 1789: to which is 
added a Natural History Appendix. 

Page 355, fig. 2. Solen patulus*. Cook’s River. [=Machera Nuttall, Cony. ] 

In the ‘ Conchology, or Natural History of Shells,’ by George Perry, Lon- 
don, 1811, a work of no little pretension, yet singularly inaccurate, are figured 
the following species, but without authorities for the assigned localities :— 

* As this extract is probably the first description on record of molluscs from the Pacific 
shores of N. America, by the original collector, and as the book is rarely to be met with; 
it may be interesting to quote the passage :— 

“At the mouth of Cook’s River [lat. 59°-61°] are many species of shell-fish, most of 
them, I presume, nondescript ; and of all which I should have endeavoured to have got 
specimens, had business permitted. Among the bivalves we noticed some of a large spe- 
cies, of the Cardium or cockle-genus [ Cardium corbis, Mart. ], half-a-dozen of which would 
have afforded a good supper for one person; but, for a repast of that kind, our men pre- 
ferred a large species of the Solen genus, which they got in quantity, and were easily dis- 
covered by their spouting up the water as the men walked over the sands where they in- 
habited: as I suppose it to be a new kind, I have given a figure of it in the annexed plate 
[ Solen patulus ; accurate external and internal views, size of life]. *Tis a thin brittle sheil, 
smooth within and without: one valve is furnished with two front and two lateral teeth 
[the ‘laterals’ are the nymphe for the ligament]; the other has one front and one side 
tooth, which slip in between the others in the opposite valve : from the teeth, in each vaive, 
proceeds a strong rib, which extends to above halfway across the shell, and gradually loses 
itself towards the edge, which is smooth and sharp. The colour of the outside is white, 
circularly, but faintly, zoned with violet, and is covered with a smooth yellowish-brown 
epidermis, which appears darkest where the zones are: the inside is white, slightly zoned, 
and tinted with violet and pink. The animal, as in all species of this genus, protrudes 
beyond the ends of the shell very much, and is exceeding good food.—A fine specimen of 
this kind is in the Collection of John Swainson, Esq., of the Custom House, London.—We 
saw also, on this coast, a kind of muscle, in colour and shape much like the common eat- 
able muscle of Europe, but differed in being circularly wrinkled, and a great deal larger 
[ Mytilus Californianus, Cony.}. One valve I saw at Queen Charlotte’s Islands measured 
above nine inches and a half in length.— With pieces of these muscles, sharpened to an ex- 
quisite edge and point, the Indians head their harpoons and other instruments for fishing 
Lhey fasten them on with a kind of resinous substance.’’— Dixon's ‘Voyage?

The common Californian Haliotis was, it seems, first described in the 
‘ Zoological Miscellany,’ by Dr. W. E. Leach, vol. 1. 1814 *. 
Page 131, pl. 58. Haliotis Cracherodii, Leach. California. 

Solander made use of the materials he had collected in Cook’s Voyage, in 
compiling a work on Conchology of considerable merit. Dillwyn made a copy 
of it, and used it in preparing his own, allowing priority to its specific names ; 
but it was never published. The types were lately parted-with by the Lin- 
nean Society, who had determined not to keep any collections except those of 
Jinneus. The ‘ Descriptive Catalogue of Recent Shells,’ &c., by L. W. Dill- 
wyn: London, 1817, is considered by Dr. Gray to be the best conchological 
work arranged according to the old system. ‘The following are quoted from 
the West Coast :— 

Vol. Page.

West Indies, auct. 

i. 469. Cyprea pustulata, Sol. Acapulco. 

i. 617. Buceinum plumbeum, Chemn. California. [Monoceros, PS. America. ] 


Following Dillwyn, and nearly eclipsing his fame through the originality 
and excellence of his classification, appeared Lamarck’s ‘ Animaux sans Ver- 
tébres,’ 1818-1822. Coordinate with or preceding this work are his Articles 
in the ‘ Annales du Muséam’ and the ‘ Encyclopédie.’ The fresh sources of 
his information are quoted in the first Report, p. 169. 

In Delessert’s ‘ Recueil,’ 1841, are figured

Pl. 19, fig. 2. Cytherea semilamellosa, Gaudichaud | = C. lupinaria}, China Seas. 

In Deshayes’ invaluable edition of the ‘An. s. Vert.,’ Paris, 1835-45, are 
quoted a variety of West Coast species which have already appeared under 
their original authorities. The following may be added :— 

Vol. Page.

The last of the early writers whose works should here be quoted, and whose 
ideas on the relations of genera were considerably in adyance of the age, though 
somewhat fanciful, is Swainson, in his-‘ Zoological Illustrations,’ 1820-1833 ; 
‘ Appendix to the Sale Catalogue of Mrs. Bligh’s Shells,’ 1822; and « Exotia 
Conchology,’ 1821-1835, reissued by Hanley, 1841. These works contain 
the following West Coast species :—

The types of the species described from this important voyage have been

tion, which he kindly allowed me to examine for that purpose; others are 
in the possession of Mr, Hanley ; but many appear hopelessly lost. 

29. Wood's 

Ind. Test—In Hanley’s Revised Edition of this important 

work (London, 1856), several new localities are added from the writer’s 
varied experience, and the synonymy is most ¢arefully elaborated. No other 

book contains 
small a compa 
for locality or 

such a mass of trustworthy information on the old species in so 
ss. The following are quoted, either as original authorities, or 
synonymy :—

species have since been detected in the Brit. Mus., from the late Lady 
Wigram’s valuable donations, including Macoma inquinata, Desh.. described 
from her specimens; but, as they are evidently from mixed localities, it has 
not been thought necessary to catalogue them. | 

29. Nuttall—The verification of Conrad’s species being of considerabie 
importance, I made diligent search for the original types during a recent 
tour in the United States. The supposed collection at Harvard University, 
Cambridge, Mass., has not been discovered by Professor Agassiz. The 
inquiries which Professor Longfellow kindly made at my request resulted in 
information that it was “in Dr. Wyman’s Mus. Nat. Hist., in the granite 
building on Howard Street ;” but no opportunity has been afforded of col- 
lating it, or even of verifying its existence. Dr. Jay rendered me every 
assistance in studying the types which he has catalogued in his collection, 
now rearranging in his residence at Memironeck, near New York, and gave 
such duplicates as could be spared for the Smithsonian Museum. Several 
species, however, were not to be found, and some were clearly erroneous, as 
e. g. Chama “ exogyra, Conr.,” which proved to be @. lobata, Brod.; W. L., 
teste Cuming; China, Brit. Mus. The most satisfactory information was 
derived from an interview with Mr. Conrad himself at the Acad. Nat. Sci., 
Philadelphia, where the honorary curator, Mr. W. G. Binney, afforded us 
all possible aid in eliminating types from the collections of the Academy and 
of private conchologists in the city. Mr. Nuttall’s death (the news of which 
was received soon after) prevented his revising the corrections thus cbtained. 
As he had previously presented a duplicate series of his shells to the Brit. 
Mus., which had been incorporated with the general collection, and had sig- 
nified to me his intention to leave the unique specimens to the nation, J at 
once communicated with the survivors and with Dr. Gray, who was fortunate 
cnough to stop the intended sale, and to secure the shells, which were kindly 
presented by the executors. They are now mounted, and kept in drawers 
adjoining the Reigen collection, the Vancouver collection, and the Stimp- 
sonian typical collection of East Coast N. American shells. The following 
is a résumé of corrections obtained from these different sources, numbered to 
correspoud with the list, Rep. pp. 194-201 :— 

“ Parapholas” penita [is a Pholadidea). 

. Platyodon cancellatus | = Cryptodonta myoides, Nutt. MS.}. 

4. Cryptodon Nuttall, Conr. [The author, finding the generic name preoecupied 
changed it to Schizotherus N.: 1852, teste Bin. Bibl.; 1854, Journ. A. N.S&

Gray. Mr. Nuttall only brought home young specimens of this extraordinary 
shell. In its adult state it assumes either a transverse form (=capaxr) or 
the elongated cendition, redescribed in a fossil state as new. Between 
these there is every gradation, as can be traced in the magnificent series In 
the Smiths, Mus. ; and a caskful of the animals in spirits, of various ages, 
has affiliated the large shells to the original Nuttallian specimens. | 
* 40. Pandora punctata [is a Clidiophora. The series s0 named in the Nuttallian 
collection belongs, however, to the Atlantic Cl. trilineata]. 
11. Solecurtus lucidus [is almost certainly the young of no. 12. The amount of 
obliquity in the internal rib is extremely variable in the adult specimens]. 
12. Solecurtus Nuttallii [=Machera patula, Dixon,= Aulus grandis, Gmel., teste 
Has. in Mus. Cum. Mr. C.’s “grandis, var.,” from Monterey, suits in its 
roportions for the adult of S. dwcidus. The shell has been widely distri- 
ater by commerce, and appears to extend far in a northerly direction. The 
| animal is very beautifully fringed ]. 

14. Solecurtus Californianus [=S. Dombeyi, teste Mus. Cuming: non Hanl. MS. }. 
| 15. Psammobia Pacifica [is a Heterodonax, probably identical with the W. Indian 
| H. bimaculata, which is found abundantly in its many varieties at Aca- 
pulco ;= Tellina vieina, C. B, Ad.]. 
| 17. Sanguinolaria Californiana [=Macoma inconspicua, Brod. & Sby., and is a 
| northern species ]. 
| 18. Sanguinolaria rubroradiata [is the young of a large species of Psammoiia}. 

22. Tellina alta [ =(from types) ?Scrobicularia biangulata, Cpr. }. 

| 23. [= Macoma edulis, Nutt.; a northern variety of MM. secta, no. 25, and quite 

distinct from IL. edentula. | 

26. The locality is not confirmed, and is probably erroneous. 

27. [Dr. Gould considers his D. obesus a distinct species; from a large series, it 

appears identical. | : 

28, 29. These species of Standella, described from young specimens, were tound 

of very large size by Dr. Cooper, with what may prove a third species, 
perhaps S. nasuta, Gld., olim. | 

80b. Petricola carditoides [with P. arcuata+ cylindracea, Desh., are varieties of P. 

Californica. The series preserved in the Smithsonian Museum connects all 
the extreme forms]. 
82. Mysia tumida, Cony. MS. [ = Diplodonta orbella, Gld., and belongs to the section 
Spherella, Conr. The label had been assigned by accident to a young valve 
j of a Chione, probably from the Sandwich Is. ]. 
83. Tapes staminea. [This is the extreme southern form of a widely diffused and 
very variable species, of which the normal condition is Sazidomus Petitir, 
| Desh.,= Venus rigida, Gld. pars. The principal varieties have been named 
Tapes diversa, Sby.= Venus mundulus, Rve., and Venus ruderata, Desh. | 

£4. [The Calfornian Saridomi divide themselves into three groups: the large, 
southern, oval, grooved shells= 8. aratus, Gld.; the subquadrate, compara- 

tively smooth, northern shells=S. squalidus+ giganteus, Desh.; and an 
intermediate form, which is the true S. Nattallii, Conr. Some of Mr. Nut- 
tall’s specimens were, however, the young of S. aratus, of which the adult 
was not known till very recently. |

subgenus, Amiantis, differing from Callista as Mercenaria does from Venus]. 
87. Plate 19, fig. 16 (not 14 nor 15). [The true Venus Nuttallii of Cony. (teste 
Conr. ips. and types in Mus. Phil. Ac. and Jay) is not the shell here cata- 
logued, which generally goes by that name, but is a synonym for the V. 
Californiensis, Brod.,=sucencta, Val. The error was corrected in the Mus. 
Cum. in time for the right shell to be figured by Reeve in his recent mono- 
graph. It is doubtful what name Conrad intended for the shell here cata- 
logued, which belongs to the group of Stutchburyi, fluctifraga, &c. If really 
distinct from the latter, it may stand as Chione callosa, Sby. jun. (non Conr.) | 
58. Venus Californiana {(teste Conr. ips.) was intended for V. Californiensis. 
Brod. Not having access to the type, it could hardly be recognized by the 


brief diagnosis. The name should therefore be dropped. The shell, pl. 19, 
fig. 15 (not 16)—Chione simillima, Sby., no. 39; a good Lower Californian 
species. It seems that the error was not in numbering of the figures, as 
Mr. Nuttall supposed, but in Conrad’s identification of Broderip’s species]. 
40. Chione excavata [is closely related to Ch. succincta ; the unique type, however, 
in Brit. Mus. displays characteristic differences of sculpture. It is singu- 
larly like the W. Indian Ch. cancellata, and may prove exotic]. 
41. Cypricardia Californica [=C. Guiniaca, Lam.,=C. Duperryi, Desh. Almost .

The identification of these species is attended with great uncertainty, as 
the types have not been seen, and the artist appears to have studied effect 
rather than accuracy. 

42. Voyage of Sulphur.—The types of these species appear to have been 
scattered. Only a part are now to be found in the very valuable collection 
of Admiral Sir E. Belcher, in which most of the shells are, unfortunately, 
destitute both of names and of locality-marks. 

Murex Belcheri (belongs to Purpurid, and may be considered the type of 
the genus Chorus]. 

Ranella Californica. {After comparing a series with the Cumingian speci- 
mens of 2. ventricosa, it appears that the diagnostic characters are not con- 

ae sapotilla. [The type in Mus. Cuming is much smaller than 
the ordinary condition of M. prunwm=cerulescens, Lam., to which species 
the common Panama shells were referred by Mr. Cuming. In his collection, 
however, they stand thus :—Ordinary Panamic type “ sapotilla, Hds.: 5-13 
fms., sandy mud, Panama, H.C.” Another tablet of the true Panama shells 
“ Marginella, n. sp., Panama,”—‘ San Domingo” having been crossed out. 
The small West Indian form, analogous to the typical sapotilla, is given as 
‘glans, Mke.” The large West Indian shells, with violet tinge behind the 
Jabrum, are “ cerulescens, Lam., Panama,” without authority. Another series 
of the W. Indian type is given as “ c@rulescens, var., Lam., 10 fms., sandy 
mud, Panama,” without authority. Either habitat-errors have crept into the 
Cumingian labels, or else Mr. Redpath’s observation will not hold, viz. that 
the Atlantic shells have a posteri:r pinch on the labrum, which is not seen 
in the Pacific. All the authentic series examined from the two coasts bear 
out his view. There will be two opinions as to whether this be more than 
a mere local distinction. | 

Solarium quadriceps. [On comparing suites of S. granulosum from the 
Texan coast with series from the Gulf of California, it appeared that on each 
side of the Peninsula the shells went through similar changes. in strength of 
sculpture, size of umbilicus, number of spiral granules, &c.; nor could any 
clue be obtained by which the coasts could be separated in a mixed collection. 
Hinds’s shell stands at the furthest extreme of removal from S. granuatum.] 

43. U.S. Exploring Expedition.—The shells of this collection were depo- 
sited in the Patent Office in Washington, D.C., where, notwithstanding the 
great care of Mr. Varden, the curator, they were not a little tampered-with. 
Dr. Gould laboured under great difficulties in his work of description; he 
had access only to that part of the collection which happened to be unpacked 
and exposed to view during the brief period that his professional engagements 
allowed of his visiting the capital; and his request to be allowed to take 
doubtful shells to Europe for identification was refused. The materials also 
were of an unsatisfactory kind, a large proportion of the specimens being 
much weathered, and many of the locality-marks being manifestly erroneous, 
If occasional errors have been detected in his great work, they may fairly be 
sect down to causes over which the author had no control. Many of these

‘have been corrected by Dr. Gould himself, in his ¢ Otia Conchologiea,? 

Boston, 1862, which contains the various papers in the ‘Proceedings of tne 
Boston Soc. of Nat. Hist.,’ with an appendix. After the organization of the 
Smithsonian Institution, all the natural-history collections belonging to the 
Federal Government were transferred to its keeping, with liberty to exchange 
duplicates. The shells remamed unopened, and the types not accessible, till, 
at the request of Professor Henry, I undertook the arrangement of the col- 
lections. Fortunately, a considerable part of the shells professing to be 
the figured types of the new species were found together, with the artist’s 
marks corresponding with the plates and figures. The result of the exami- 
nation, so far as the general collection is concerned, will shortly be prepared 
for the press; it 1s sufficient here to tabulate the observations on the N.W. 
American species, which were, as it happened, the most satisfactorily pre- 
served in the whole series. The following additional particulars include the 
“* Rectifications ” in the ‘ Otia,’ the paging of which is continued from the 
‘«« Expedition Shells ” quoted in Rep. p. 209. The quarto volume quoted in 
p. 210 is distinguished as ‘‘ KE. E. Mollusca.” The folio atlas of plates bears 
date on title 1856, but was not published till 1861, teste Binn. Bibl. vol. i. 
p. 504. The comparisons of types were made in 1860, from a proof copy.

and all the others seen from the coast, agree in belonging to Ischnochiton,

trum, Nutt., while 4566 represents the flattened variety of .4. persona, 
Esch. (approaching the form digitalis, Esch.). As the diagnosis best 
accords with the latter shell, P. seabra, Gld., may stand as a synonym of 
persona, var. ; the intermixed specimen, accidentally figured as belonging 
to the species, being removed to spectrum, Nutt. Thus the name scabra, 
not being needed as first described, will remain for Nuttall’s species, 
described by Rve., but first named in print by Jay.]

44. Middendorff.—The synonymy given in Rep. pp. 214-222 is that of 
the author, not of the writer of the Report, who is by no means prepared to 
accept the learned doctor’s identification of species. The three Chitons quoted 
with doubt from Tilesius have not been confirmed, as from Kamtschatka, by 
any other writer. The Ch. giganteus has the aspect of the large Ischnochiton 
Magdalensis ; the Ch. muricatus belongs to the Lophyrus group, which is not 
known so far north ; and the Ch. setosus has also a 8S. American aspect. The 
treatise “‘ De Chitone Giganteo Camtschatico additamentum ad Zoographiam 

tosso-Asiaticum, auctore Tilesio,” was read March 19, 1823, and published 
in 1824. It contains a very valuable and (for that period) remarkable account 
of the anatomy of Chitons, but it does not profess to name and describe species 
in the modern sense. The names, therefore, had better be dropped. Midden- 
dorff’s new species were first described in the ‘ Bulletin de la Classe Physico- 
Mathématique de Académie Imperiale des Sciences de St. Pétersbourg,’ a 
work of which few complete copies are known in England, under the follow- 
ing dates.

Col. Jewett went to Panama, as a private collector, in January 1849, 
spending ten weeks in that region, including Taboga. This was two years 
before Prof. Adams’s explorations. Thence he sailed to San Francisco, 
where he spent four months in exploring the shore for about 50 miles 
from the head of the bay. After labouring for a week at Monterey, he 
spent ten weeks at Sta. Barbara and the neighbourhood, thoroughly exploring 
the coast for fifteen miles as far as Sta. Bonadventura. It was here, at the 
“ Rincon,” after a violent southern storm, that he obtained the specimens of 
Livona picoides, as well as many other rare species that have not been obtained 
by any other explorer. ‘The storm tore up the kelp to such a degree that 
it formed a bank for many miles on the beach, from 10 to 20 feet broad, and 
at least 4 feet deep. Many of the plants were more than 60 feet long and 5 
inches in diameter, having the appearance of vast cables.” Before his return 
to the east, he also collected at Mazatlan (where he obtained some species 
not included in the B. M. Catalogue) and at Acapuleo. There can be no 
doubt of the accuracy of the Colonel’s observations at the time they were 
made. Unsurpassed in America asa field-paleoutologist, possessed of accurate

discrimination, abundant carefulness, and unwearied diligence and patience, 
no one was better fitted to collect materials for a scientific survey of the coast. 
But, unfortunately for his (as for the Nuttallian) shells, he did not describe them 
at the time himself. They were subjected to all the derangements caused by 
frequent changes of residence, and transmission to various naturalists for 
identification. As we know what errors creep into the collections of the 
most learned under such circumstances, it is not surprising that they should 
now have lost much of their geographical value. After several days spent 
| in a very searching elimination of the west-coast shells from his general col- 
| lection, I was driven to the conclusion that several labels had become mis- 
placed. This was so clearly the case as to certain N. England and W. Indian 
species interchanged with Pacific specimens, that it might also affect. (e. g.) 
i | Sta. Barbara and Panama specimens as compared with each other. The kelp 

| driven up by the great storm may have travelled from remote localities ; which 
i will account for tropical shells having been found at Sta. Barbara, as W. 
Indians-occasionally are even on our own shores. It is possible also, as the 

Californian seas have as yet been but little dredged, that deep-water species 
? live there which as yet are known only in the tropical province. Already 
some Gulf species have been thus obtained at San Diego and Catalina Island 
! by Dr. Cooper, just as Mr. M‘Andrew dredged Mediterranean species on the 
coast of Norway. But facts of such importance should rest on better evidence 
than chance shells picked on a beach, and subjected to dangers of altered 
labels afterwards. What was regarded by Dr. Gould as of authority is cata- 
logued, according to his determinations of species, on pp. 226-231 of the first 
Report. The following is a list of the species which I found in the collection’, 
divided simply into the temperate and the tropical faunas.

. * This collection belongs to his daughter, Mrs. Boyce, of Utica, N.Y. The Colonel’s 
invaluable collection of U. S. Paleozoic fossils (probably the largest made by any indivi- 

dual’s own hand) may be consulted at the State Museum in Albany, and will probably 
find its ultimate destination at one of the principal colleges. A large number of the 
fossils described by Prof. Hall were from this collection, though often without acknow- 
ledgment. Only a small proportion of the types of the celebrated ‘ Paleontology’ are 
to be found in the State Collection, which was subjected to disastrous and very extensive 
curtailment before Col. J. entered on his present duties as curator. 

* These species and marked varieties were first found by Col. J. 

+ Of these forms, either not seen or not distinguished by Dr. Gould, the diagnoses are 
written, and will probably be found in one of the scientific periodicals for 1864. 

~ Unless otherwise stated in the list, Report, pp. 228-281, it may be presumed that 
these species were from the neighbourhood of Sta. Barbara.

This list, of about 133 species from the northern and 828 from the 
southern fauna (nearly twice as large as that sent by Dr. Gould and printed 
in the first Report, and yet not containing several species there quoted), is an 
instructive instance of what may be accomplished in about three-quarters of 
a year, simply by picking up shore-shells. It contains about 48 species in 
the northern and 22 in the southern faunas not previously described. 

Besides the recent shells, Col. Jewett brought home a very interesting 
series of Pliocene fossils from the neighbourhood of Sta. Barbara. Almost all 
of them are species known to inhabit neighbouring seas, and are chiefly 
northern forms. Of some no recent specimens have yet been found in such 
perfect condition. The following is a list of the species, which is of the more 
value as they have not been intermixed with those of any other locality, and 
the spot does not seem to have been discovered by any succeeding geological 
explorer. It was two miles from the coast, and 150 feet high.

The collections of Major Rich, having been tabulated by Dr. Gould simply 
as from Upper or Lower California, I had expected to find of but little geo- 
graphical value, They proved, however, to be of peculiar interest. Major 

ich had been one of the naturalists in the U. 8. Expl. Exp., and his warlike 
occupations did not prevent his remaining long enough at particular stations 
to pay close attention to the Molluscs. His forte lay in procuring shells in 
the best possible condition; and a study of them was very serviceable in 
explaining the dead shore-shells usually obtained from other sources. For- 
tunately, he was quite aware of the importance of geographical accuracy, and 
arranged those obtained at different places in separate drawers. The ‘* Upper 
Californian ” collections were made at Monterey, San Francisco, San Diego, 
and San Pedro; the “ Lower Californian,” in the Gulf, principally at La 
Paz, partly at San Jose and Mazatlan. At the latter place he met M. 
teigen, who had filled his house with decomposing molluscs to such an ex- 
tent as to induce the neighbours to have recourse to the police. From him he 
obtained many species not in the Brit. Mus. Cat., and probably sent to Europe 
in the Havre collection. Major Rich’s beautiful series may be consulted at 
his residence, opposite the British Legation, Washington, D.C.; and are 
designed ultimately for one of the public museums in the neighbourhood.

Lieut. Green having been obliged to pack up his collection and leave home 
on professional duty, [ was not able to make any critical examination of it, 
Capt. Dupont also, of Delaware, was one of the ‘‘ Mexican-war naturalists,” 
and made a large collection of La Paz shells during his campaign ; but I had 
no opportunity of seeing them. 

Dr. Gould notes the following corrections in Lieut. Green’s list, pp. 231= 
234 :— 

Semele flavicans should be flavescens. | Donax abruptus should be obesus. 

50. Kellett and Wood.—The locality-marks, on further study, display still 
greater inaccuracies. 

Nassa Woodwardii, Fbs., Sandwich Islands [is the adolescent state of a very abun- 
dant Vancouver and Californian shell, = N. mendica, Gd. }. 

Nassa Cooperi, Fbs., Sandwich Islands. [The type is immature and in poor con- 
dition; but it is a rare Californian species, since found by Dr. Cooper. | 

Trochita spirata {has not been confirmed from Gulf Cal., but appears in Brit. Mus. 
from St. Vincent, Cape Verd Is., on the excellent authority of Macgillivray, who 
did not visit the West Coast. The Cumingian specimens were from K. and W.; 
but the “ sp¢rata, var.,” from Magellan and Peru, are simply turrited forms of 7. 
radians \. 

Chlorostoma aureotincta [=C. nigerrima (Gmel.), Mus. Cum. ; but it is unlikely 
that Gmelin knew the species. It is not quoted by Desh. (Lam. ix. 157): but 
the Trochus in fauce nigerrimus, Chemn. f. 1526, = T. melanostomus, Gmel., is a 
Risella. | 

Margarita purpurata et Hillit [are South American shells]. 

Purpura analoga [is the rough irregular form of P. canaliculata=decemcostata |. 

»  fuscata, Fbs. i which one brown and one whitish specimen (immature) 
are preserved in the Brit. Mus. as types, is the large, smooth, rather elevated var. 

of saxicola. It belongs to the Vancouver district }. 

Purpura, like decem-costatus and Freycinetit {is the normal state of saxicola, The 
banded smooth var. is named in Brit. Mus. “? Bue. striatum, Martyn, Un, 
Conch. no. 7,” but does not agree with the figure ]. 

Lusus Kellettii. [This Siphonalia, after long remaining unique in the Brit. Mus. 
Col., has been twice contirmed from the San Diegan district by the Smithsonian 
collectors. Dr. Cooper’s living specimen is 6:25 in. long; and -one specimen 
was dredged by A. Ad. in the seas of South Japan. | 
51. Reigen.—The type collection, presented to the Brit. Mus., contains 

about 8900 specimens. The first duplicate series, containing about 6000 

shells, was presented to the State of New York at the urgent request of 

Dr. Newcomb (well known for his researches in Achatinella, made during his 

professional residence im the Sandwich Islands), and is arranged in the Albany 

Museum. Three other typical series were prepared for the Museums of 

Paris, Berlin, and St. Petersburg, and offered on the same terms, viz. that 

they should be arranged by the author, and preserved intact for the tree use 

t Dead shells at La Paz; two fresh specimens in deep water from San Jose; ditto, 
Lieut. Green, 



of students; but the donations were severally declined by the respective 
governmenis. They have since been offered to the Museums of Harvard 
University, Cambridze, Mass.; M‘Gill University, Montreal, C. E.; and the 
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C.; and accepted on the same con- 
ditions *. The writer of the Brit. Mus. Catalogue spared no pains in his 
endeavours to verify the previously described species of Prof. C. B. Adams; 
yet a subsequent comparison of types has developed very unexpected coinci- 
dences. Those who will take the trouble to compare the two diagnoses in the 
synonyms now given will add one to the many proofs of the uncertainty of 
the senses in observation, and the inaccuracy of language in description. The 
following corrections and additions should be made to the list in the British 
Association Report, pp. 243-264. 

18. Parapholas acuminata is united to P. calva by Tryon, Mon. Phol. 

23. The specimens obta’ned from Madagascar by Sir E. Belcher in the Voy. Sa- 
marang appear absolutely identical. 

24. Petricola robusta. The West Indian form of this species is the Choristodon 
typicum of Jonas; Mus, Cum. 

35. Sphenia fragilis is perhaps 8. hiticola, Val. 

38. Solecurtus politus ? = S. Carpenteri, Diy. 

40. Should be Semele flavescens, Gld. 

41. Semele ?venusta should be S. bicolor, C. B. Ad. Panama. C.S. Lucas. 

46. Should be Sangucnolaria miniata, Gld., as in first Report. 

48. Should be Tellina purpurea, Brod. & Sby., teste type in Mus. Hanl. 

49. =T. pura, Gld., nom. prior. 

54. Quite distinct from Tellina alternata, Say. 

56. Tellina ?eburnea proves to be the type of a new generic form, probably 
belonging to Kelliade, viz. Cycladella papyracea. A perfect specimen, since 
found, is in Mr. Hanley’s collection. 

65. Telhidora Burneti is not L. cristata: v. antea, p. 528. 

66. =Strigilla fucata, Gld. (not maniata). Specimens received from different 
stations on the Pacific Coast vary very greatly in colour and markings. 

68. The fragment of “?? Psammobia” is perhaps part of a Lepas-valve. 

71 and 72. The names of these shells have been altered and re-altered in Mus. 
Cuming, as will be seen by comparing Brit. Mus. Maz. Cat., p. 43, with the 
note, p. 548, and with the present arrangement. Mr. Hanley states that 
no. 72, D. culminatus, Cpr., is his true carinatus ; therefore 71, D. carinatus, 
Cpr., and of most collections, must stand as D.rostratus, C. B. Ad., teste type- 
valve in Mus. Amherst. The two species uniformly retain their dis- 
tinctive characters. 

78. Should be Mactrella exroleta= Lutraria ventricosa, Gld., from type. 

81. Should be Gnathodon mendicus, Gld. 

83. T. Hindsit is distinct, teste Hanl. 

85. T. argentata, Sby., 1855,=T. equilatera, Desh., 1839. 

92-99. The generic name should be Callista. 

* A few of the duplicate sets having been sent in exchange to one of the principal 
scientific dealers, he advertises a list of species in which he not merely alters the nomen- 
clature, giving ‘‘ Monoceros” cingulatum, “ Pollia” insignis (with “ Pisania”’ gemmata), 
“ Trochus” olivaceus (with “ Imperator” unguis), “ Cerithium” montagui (for Cerithidea 
Montagnet), Cytherea “ dione” (for Dione lupinaria), “ Astarte” Dunkeri, “ Cytherea” 
Columbiensis, &c., but inserts Californian species (‘“‘ Ziziphinus filosus,’ “ Cardium 
Nutali”’) as though from the Gulf, and adds others not known at all in the West Coast 
faunas, as “ Columbella levigata,’ “ Patella plumbea,” and “ Chiton reticulata.’ All 
these, with such shells as Oliva Cumingii, which belong to other regions on the Mexi- 
can coast, would be accredited by the reader on the supposed authority of “ Carpenter’s 
Catalogue.” In these times it appears that naturalists must be content to resemble the 
dealers in patent medicines, and guard the accuracy of their works! With regard to the 
Mazatlan collections (now scarce), none can be trusted unless they present an ualrokea 
seal, with the initials of the author, 


BAA REPORT— 1863. 

98. Callista alternata has avery different aspect from the ordinary C. circinata; but 
several of the Pacific shells affiliate more naturally to the West Indian form. 
99. C. affinis, C. tortuosa, and C. concinna appear to be one species. ; 

100. Sir E. Belcher is confident that he dredged C. petechiulis, in deep water, off S. 
Blas. He has the same confidence in regard to some of the Kast Indian 
Circes. At this distance of time, a written locality-ticket would have had 
more authority. 

105. The hinge proves that this species is distinct from the true V. crenifera, Sby. 
It has been named V. sugillata by Rve., Conch. Ic. sp. 43. It was also 
brought by Kellett and Wood, and is allied to V. pulicaria. 

110. Among the Panama varieties of this very variable species is Venus fuscolineata. 
T. grata takes the place of the Californian 7. staminea, which is sometimes 
erroneously given as a synonym, and is not straminea, as often quoted. 

116. It appears that Gouldia (Thetis, C. B. Ad., olim, non Sby. nec H. & A. Ad.) is 
congeneric with “ Circe” minima, not with the Astartids. Prof. Adams’s 
fresh specimens of his G. Pacifica prove to have the Crassatelloid internal 
ligament, and represent one of the many remarkable forms of that group. 

117. Fresh specimens of G. varians, from Cape St. Lucas, have also the internal 
ligament, and must rank under Crassated/a until that genus has been naturally 

118. Lazaria Californica. A well-marked group of species from the West Coast. 

121. The purple and orange specimens, here treated as the adolescent state of Chama 
Mexicana, are certainly the Ch. echinata of collections, and may possibly 
prove a distinct species. A large series sent from Socoro Is. by Mr. Xantus 
confirms this view; but all the specimens seen are decorticated or incrusted. 

121. This is the Chama Buddiana of C. B. Ad., and probably distinct. 

134. The specimens of Cardium graniferum in Mus. Cum., from St. Thomas, W. L, 
appear exactly identical. 

136. The specimens from the Pacific coast, some of which are of very large size, 
have generally a red tinge round the inner margin; as have also the Fiji 
specimens brought by the U. S. Expl. Exp. In other respects they exactly 
accord with the W. Indian. The Pacitic shells are generally called C 
exasperata, Rve., a name first given to the rough Caribbean variety from 
Honduras, &e. 

137. Codakia punctata. This shell also, brought by the U. 8. Expl. Exp. from the 
Fiji Is., is found sparingly along the American shores, and has the same 
coloured margin. 

142. May possibly prove identical with Z. bella, Conr., 8. Diego. 

150. The Lucina orbella of Gould, = Spherella tumida, Conr., MS., is the northern 
form; uniformly larger and smoother than Diplodonta semiaspera. This 
last is fully confirmed from both oceans. 

152. “ Felania” serricata appears congeneric with Miltha, H. & A. Ad.,= Mittrea, 
Gray, the type of which (JZ. Childreni) is a Gulf species. 

154. Lasea rubra. Myr. J. G. Jeffreys does not consider the Brit. Mus. specimen 
identical with the British. The Mediterranean specimens are much more 
unlike. A colony of fresh shells from a burrow at Cape St. Lucas, when 
examined, under the microscope, side by side with Ilfracombe specimens, did 
not present even varietal differences. The species also appears on the Cali- 
fornian and Japan coasts. Similar and perhaps conspecitic forms are 
found on most coasts: among them is Poronia Petitiana, Chen. Conch. Ill. 
p- 2, pl. 1. f. 2; Callao, not rare, Pett. 

156. For this species, corbulordes, and other angular forms, the name Bornia may 
be revived in a restricted sense. (A. Ad. 

157, 158. Mr. A. Adams, who is about to make the Kelliads a special study, thinks 
that these intermediate forms would rank better with Montacuta or Tellinya 

166. This is almost certainly = Anodonta glauca, Val. 

168. Dr. Dunker renamed this shell M. Adamsianus, P. Z.S. Nov. 1856. 

177. The subgenus Adwa may be enlarged to include this and other nestling 
? Lithophagt, which often adhere by byssus, like Modiola. 

178. Liosolenus is quite distinct from Mytilimeria, which appears simply an aber- 
rant form of Lyonsia. Other “ Lithophagi”’ probably rank with it. 


186. Arca senilis is from W. Africa not“. Indies”): one of the many representative 
species between the two West Coasts. 

185. Noétia reversa, Gray. 

186. Argina brevifrons, Sby. 

188. This is the young of Barbatia alternata. 

191-195 belong to the group Barbatia. 

193. =Barbatia Tabogensis, from type. 

203. The young of this shell is Avzcuda libella, Rve. Dr. Gould protests against 
some of the interpretations here given to his views. 

204. The W. American pearl-oyster should stand as M. fimbriata, Dkr. It has 
been redescribed as JZ. barbata, Rve. 

212. Dr. Gould protests against the Pacific shells being regarded as 0. Virginica. 
Mr. Hanley adheres to his original opinion. Fossils sent from the Sand- 
wich Is. by Mr. Pease (O. Sandwichensis, Pse.) appear scarcely to differ. 

214b. The O. palmula appears a distinct species. 

215. This species is identical with O. no. 384 of C. B. Ad. It may take the name 
of O. amara from its “ bitter flavour.” 

224. Bulla Adamsi=B. punctulata, C. B. Ad., non A. Ad. 

229. Haminea cymbiformis is closely allied to H. virescens, Shy. 

239, Siphonaria lecanium. SS. maura, Sby., is one of the varieties of this species. 
The S. palmata may prove distinct. S. ferruginea, Rve., is probably ae- 
scribed from the intermediate form. 

242. Tanthina striulata. Name given in ignorance of striolata, Ad. and Rye. ; and 
not needed, teste Rve. 

245. The Denialium hyalinum of Phil. is probably the young of D. senupolitum : 
this species is distinct. 

247. The Dent. pretiosum of Nutt. is a northern species ; this is most likely D. lac- 
teum, Phil. 

248-250. This typical group of Chitonids retains the Linnean name in Dr. Gray's 
arrangement; and as he first pointed out the generic distinctions in the 
family, his judgment is to be preferred. 

959-954, 256. These species belong to Ischnochiton, Gray. 

255. Lepidopleurus, Risso, has sculptured valves and scaly margin, and is probably 
synonymous with Lophyrus, H. and A. Ad, The name may be retained ter 
the “ Lophyroid ” Ischnochiton here described, the peculiarities of which have 
been confirmed by adult specimens in Mus. Cuming, and by other species. 

257. Chiton, H. and A. Ad.,=Acanthopleura (Guild.), Gray. 


62. = Nacella peltoides, n. s. (described from Cape St. Lucas specimens). 

3. The true Lottia pintadina of Gld. (teste figured types) consists entirely of 
varieties of A. patina. 

265. The “large flat shell” referred-to is Tecturella grandis, Gray, Brit. Assoc. Rep. 
1861, p. 1387. Tecturella is preoccupied by Stimps. Gr. Manan Invert. 2 
being needful to divide the old genus Acmea, Lottia may be used for this 
section. By reviving synonyms as sectional names, when a genus is divided, 
good names may be retained in a restricted sense, and the burden of a spu- 
rious nomenclature lessened. The species is Lottia gigantea (Sby. Gen.). 

269. Scutellina navicelloides, Cpr.,= Crepidula osculans, C. B. Ad. 

280. This should stand as Gadinia stellata, Sby., that name having been given to 
the normal form, Rep. pl. 7. f. 3a, of which pentegoniostoma, f. 3f, is only 
an accidental variety. 

282. Callopoma Fokkesii=tessellatum, Rve., is the Lower Californian form, and 
probably distinct. 

2835. = Turbo phasianella, C. B. Ad., non Melaraphe phasianella, Phil. 

289. The first name is 7. erimius, Rve., P. Z. S. 1842, p. 185; Mke.’s shell bearing 

F date 1850. It appears identical with “ Javanieus, Lam.,” in Mus. Cum., and 

is extremely like “ speciosus, Japan.” Trochus being now generally retained 
for the Niloticus group, which contains the largest forms, it is best to revive 
Swainson’s excellent name Calliostoma for the “ Ziziphinus ’group. A specific 
name should not be used for a genus, where a distinctive name has already 
been accurately described. 



546 REPORT—1863. 

290. Culliostoma M*Andre@ is the normal state, of which C. Leanwm is the pale 

292. Mr. Pee considers that 7. Byronianus represents a Polydonta from the Pacific 

313-316. The non-pearly Liotie ave Conradia, A. Ad. ‘ 

322, 323. Mr. A. Adams thinks that the “ Lthaha” amplectans is probably the 
young of “ Teinostoma” a., as suggested in Brit. Mus. Cat. p. 263. 

338. Crepidula adunca, Cpr. (non Sby.,=solida, Hds.,=rostriforms, Gld.). The 
tropical shell is C. wncata, Mke.,=C. rostrata, C. B. Ad., Rve. 

341. Should stand as C. squama: v. note on C. B, Ad. no. 351. 

354. Vermetus eburneus, Rve.,= V. ?glomeratus, C. B. Ad., non Lam. The note to 
Caecum, Brit. Mus. Cat. p. 314, should read:— Of a fourth group, Mezoceras, 
three species are known from the Caribbean Sea, one of which is fossil at 
Grignon. The earliest Cecid is the Eocene genus Strebloceras.” Vide 
Mon. Crecide in P. Z. 8. 1858, pp. 415-444. 

. Cerithiun irroratum, Gld. (teste type sp. in Mus. Smiths.), is a very distinct 
East Indian species, = C. obesum, Sby. sen. 

. This is not the C. interruptum of C. B. Ad., Sby., and Mus. Cum. (hodie), 
which latter is the roughened form of C. stereus muscarum, Val. C. Galla- 
paginis is the rough form of C. interruptum, Mie. 

389. Vertagus should be changed into Rhinoclavis, Swains.; v. note to 289. 

391-393. The genus Triforis should be removed to Cerithiopside. The true 
“ Triforis” infrequens of C. B. Ad. is a dextral shell, = Cerithiopsis tuber- 
culoides, no. 557. The shell here doubtfully affiliated is probably a variety 
of T. inconspicuns.

nom. prov. 

899. = Litorina pullata, Cpy.; described from Cape St. Lucas specimens. 

409. Probably = Rissoina firmata, C. B. Ad.,+ BR. sealariformis, C. B. Ad.

412, 413. Belong to Fenella, A. Ad.* F. excurvata=? Rissoa inconspicua, ©. B. Ad.y 
non Alder. 5 

417. Fresh specimens prove this to be not a dead Hydrobia ulve, but a Barlecia, 
It appears on the Californian coast, as B. subtenws. 

418, 421. Are very similar, and possibly conspecific forms of Cythna, A. Ad. 

422. Is a Gemella, teste A. Ad. 

426, 427. Belong to Stylferina, A. Ad. 

430 et seg. Some of these forms may rank with Gottoma, A. Ad., and thus approach 

457. Luponia spurca, This shell is quite distinct from ZL. albuginosa, to which it 
was supposed to belong by Dr. Newcomb. _ It is probably a ballast specimen. 

38. Quite distinct from the Panamic 4. punctulata. 

445, 446. Cancellariade should be removed to Proboscidifera, teste A. Ad. 

450-452. Mr. Reeve unites all these species, with several others, to M. variegata; 
which is certainly the easiest way of meeting the difficulty. 

455. Myurella rufocinerea= T. rudis, Gray, teste Rve. : 

477. Conus regalitatis= C. purpurascens, var. Most Cones vary in the same manner. 

484. Torinia variegata. My. Hanley restores to this shell the uncomfortable name 
of Chemn. (perspectiviuncula), and unites to it areola, Desh. A careful com- 
parison with shells from the Pacific Islands (teste Pease’s specimens) proves 
them to be completely identical. The ‘specific’ names of Chemn., when 
simply the second word of the diagnosis, can hardly claim precedence. 

486. The genera in this family have lately been revised by Mr. A. Adams. A 
large number of his Japanese groups are here represented. This species 



* The generic names here given were assigned by Mr. A. Adams, who kindly examined 
the figures of the minute Mazatlan shells, all of which have been drawn under the micro- 



agrees with Pyramidella, sp. ind., C. B. Ad., no. 298 (not 294), and may he 
quoted as Obeliseus Adams. 

487, 488. Belong to Evalea, A. Ad. 

4*9. Is a Syrnola, A. Ad. 

492. The peculiar appearance of the apex is due to decollation, as proved by the 
discovery of an adolescent and several adult specimens. It probably beiongs 
to Diala, A. Ad., and=Cingula paupercula, C. B. Ad., no. 253. 

493-500. Belong to Miralda, A. Ad. Parthenia quinquecincta=? Cingula turritu, 
C. B. Ad.,+ Rissoa notabilis, C. B. Ad. 

501, 502. Belong toOseilla, A. Ad. Parthenia erarata=? Cingula terebellum, C. B. Ad. 

503-506. The “ Odostomoid Chrysallide” probably rank best with Mumiola, A. Ad. 

512. Chrysallida ovulum=? Cingula inconspicua, C. B. Ad. ; non ? Rissoa inconspicua, 
C. B. Ad. nec Alder. 

513-515. Are Pyrgulina, teste A. Ad. The Japanese species, however, seem more 
like Parthenia, no. 497. 

517. Is a Styloptygma, A. Ad. 

520. This is not the Chemnitzia similis of C. B. Ad.; and is probably a variety of 
Ch. Panamensis. 

623. = Chemnitzia affinis, C. B. Ad., pars: pars= Ch. undata, no. 531. 

535. Is perhaps a Mormula, A. Ad. 

645. The various shells grouped under Aclis require revision. Comp. Onoba, A.Ad., 
and Ebala, Gray, which is figured as Aclis in Add. Gen. 

549. Ranks best with Ewlimella. 

550. This is not Lezostraca recta, C. B. Ad., and may be called Mue onalia invotuta. 

551. This is not ZL. solitaria, C. B. Ad., and may be called ZL. producta. 

552. = Mucronalia solitaria, C. B. Ad. 

553. Ranks best with Zulima, teste A. Ad. 

555. L.retera; distinct from ZL. iota, C. B. Ad. 

556. Should be Lulima, teste A. Ad. 

557. Vide note to 393. 

563. Belongs to the subgenus Setla, A. Ad. 

568. Scalaria raricosta is perhaps the young of 8. Elenensts. 

569. S. funiculata and S. diadema, with their congeners, should be removed from 
Cirsotrema to Opala. 

570. Dr. Gould dissents from the affiliation of this shell to the West African species 
on the ground that “he can separate the African from the Pacific shells as fast 
as we can hand them to him.” So easily can any ordinary natural:st separate 
conspecific British and Mediterranean specimens, or Mazatlan and Panama 
specimens. It is not found in the West Temperate fauna; the “var. Ca/i- 
fornica” being the ordinary type from the Pacific Islands, which is much 
more entitled to be regarded as distinct than are the’ West American forms. 

572. Is shown by perfect Cape St. Lucas specimens to belong to a natural group 
of species, resembling flattened, perforated Phasianelle, to which the name 
Eucosmia may be given. 

580. Appears under genus “ Lagena, Klein,’ * in Mus. Cuming; the Argobuccina 
cancellatum, Oregonense, &c., having received a new name, Priene, H. & A.Ad. 

589. This belongs to Closia, Gray, = Volutella, Swains., non D’Orb. 

* The names of Klein in his ‘Tentamen’ and ‘ Lucubratiuncula,’ 1773, are not entitled 
to precedence (according to the Brit. Assoc. rules), because he evidently did not adopt the 
Linnean mode of binomial nomenclature. What he calls a “ genus” answers more to the 
modern idea of chapter or section. By chance, some of his names are allowable; but, if 
used, the genus must be regarded as that of Adams, Gray, Morch, or other writer who 
defines it. The following will serve as illustrations of Klein’s “ genera””—‘‘ Sol, Luna, 
Stella, &e.; Auris, Anas, Tigris, Pes-anserinus, Tuba-phonurgica, Cochlea-lunaris, 
Cochlea-celata, &e.; Buecinum-lacerum, Buccinum-muricatum, Thema-musicum, &c. ; 
Ostreum-imbricatum, Ostreum-muricatum, &c.; Musculus-latus, Musculus-mammarius, 
&e., Tellina-arcinata, Tellina-virgata, &c.; Concha-longa-biforis, Concha-longa-uniforis; 
Concha-rpidoj3os ;”’ and, in p. 167, “ Musculus-polylepto-ginglymus,” under which re- 
markable generic name is given as the first species “ Arca-Noe.” According to the now 
fashionable transformation of malacological nomenclature into a branch of archeological 
research, under pretence of justice to ancient writers, the hithe,to universally understood

Oliva intertincta is very close to the young of O. subangulata, but differs in tha 
chestnut stain on the columella. I have not been able to compare iv with 
the young of O. Cumingi. Puke 

Is an abundant species in the Eastern Islands, occasionally seen in West 
Coast collections. 

Belongs to Anazola, Gray. 
now called Olivina, Gray. ‘ 

Ohivella aureocincta= Oliva pellucida, C. B. Ad., non Rve. 

Olivella inconspicua, C. B, Ad., is probably the young of the colourless var. of 
O. gracilis, which must be excluded from the synonymy of O. dama, no. 600, 

The figure of Purpura biserialis, jun., Brit. Mus. tablet 2252, is stated by Mr. 
A. Ad. to represent the genus Snusigera, D’Orb., = Chelitropis, Fbs. ; just as 
Macyillivrayia is the young of Dolium. 

Rhizocheilus nux+ R. distans, Cpr. 

The young of Vituaria salebrosa is named Fusus lamellosus, Hds., in Brit. Mus., 
and is also the “ Ranella triquetra” of Nuttall’s coilection. 

Is probably C. baccata, Gask., in Mus. Cum., though Mr. Gaskoin regarded it 
asnew. The var. obsoleta, 618), is probably C. galavias, Rve. 

622. These shells may perhaps be better studied under Daphnella. 

Certainly = WN. gemmulosa, C. B. Ad. 

The remaining Mazatlan species of Olivella are 

3. Nassa crebristriata may rank as a yar. under proxima, C. B. Ad., which is pro- 

bably itself a var. of verszcolor. 

This aberrant group of forms is now transferred to Cantharus in Mus.Cuming. 
Perhaps they rank better with Stphonalia, A. Ad. 

Anachis rufotincta ( new,” teste Gaskoin) is probably= Col. diminuta, C. B. 
Ad., in Mus. Cum., but scarcely agrees with the diagnosis, nor was the ac- 
cordance noticed in the Amherst types. 

= P, elegans, Gray, in Griff. Cuv. pl. 25. f. 2. (1884.) 

The following species, since found, must be added to the catalogue of the 

Reigen Collection. 



The specimens are deposited in the British Museum, 
descriptions of nos. 693-695 appear in the appendix to the Brit. Mus,

54. CO. B. Adams.—After arranging the duplicate Reigen Collection in the 
State Museum at Albany, New York, I proceeded to Amherst, Mass., io 
study the type-collection from which Prof. Adams’s book was written. The 
result is embodied in a “ Review of Prof. C. B. Adams’s ‘ Catalogue of the 
Shells of Panama,’ from the Type Specimens,” written for the Zool. Soc. in 
Jan., and published in the Proceedings for July 1863, pp. 339-369. In this 
paper the synonymy between the Mazatlan and Panama Catalogues is pointed 
out, and the species assigned to the modern genera. The following are the 
principal corrections needed in the list, Rep. pp. 267-280. The results in 
the succeeding paragraphs, pp. 280, 281, should be altered accordingly. 
(M.=Brit. Mus. Maz. Cat.) 

3. Ovula neglecta=avena, var. 
8. Cyprea punctulata ; quite distinct from C. arabicula. 

11. Cyprea rubescens, C. B. Ad.,=T. sanguinea, dead. 

15. Marginella sapotilla, C. B. Ad., is perhaps a large form of sapotilla, Hds. — It 
is destitute of the sharp posterior labral angle seen in the West Indian 
specimens of c@rulescens. 

33. Oliva araneosa, C. B. Ad.,=O. Melchersi, M. 591. 

35. Oliva pellucida, C. B. Ad., =O. aureocincta, M. 598, dead.

52. Nassa proxima+54 N. striata, C. B. Ad. [non Mus. Cum. = N. paupera, Gld. |], 
+N. ecrebristriata, M. 633, are probably vars. of N. versicolor. 

53. Nassa scabriuscula, C. B. Ad.,+56 N. Wilsoni=N. complanata, Pws. 

70. Purpura foveolata, probably = worn sp. of Cuma costata, M. 610. 

74. Purpura osculans+ Rh. Californicus+ Rh. distans, are probably vars. of Rhizo- 
cheilus nus. 

81. Columbella costellata, C. B. Ad.,= Anachis scalarina, Sby. 

98. Columbella parva, C. B, Ad.,=dead sp.-of Anachis pygmea. 

103. Columbella tessellata, C. B. Ad. (non Gask.),= A. Guatemalensis, Rve. 

110. Cassis abbreviata can scarcely be distinguished, in some of its many varieties 
from the Texan Bezoardica inflata, 

154. Cancellaria affinis scarcely differs from C. urceolata, M. 445. 





Cancellaria ryqmea= C. goniostoma, jun., no. 157, =M. 446, 

. Pleirctoma atrior = Drillia vy, Melchersi, M. 461. 
. Plenrotoma discors, C. B, Ad., is probably a finely developed var. of D. 


Pleurotoma rustica, C. B. Ad.,=worn specimens of D, Melchersi, no. 164. 

Mangelia neglecta, probably =M. acuticostata, M. 473. 

195, 201 belong to Cerithiopsis. 

Cerithium famelicum must stand for the West Coast Uncinoids, M. 383; the 
Cumingian shell, and two out of ten in the type-series, belong to C. me- 
dioleve, M. 382. 

199, 200 are various forms of C. stercus muscarum, Val.; quite distinct from 
C. interruptum, Mke., and C. irroratum, Gld. 

. Does not correspond with the diagnos:s, and must stand as Chrysallida pau- 

percula, a very distinct species. 

Ts scarcely a variety of Zreforts alternatus, no, 207. 

Both the specimens are dextral, = Cerithiopsis tuberculoides, M. 557. 

Turriteiia Banksti, C. B. Ad. (non Rve.)= 7. goniostoma,.jun., M. 379, 

A dead, stunted specimen of Cecum undatum, M. 371. 

Chemnitzia acuminata is a very broad but typical species; not Chrysallida. 

Chemnitzia affinis, Mus. Cum. and M. 523, has sufficient correspondence with 
the diagnosis ; but the type= Ch. undata, M. 531. 

. Chemnitzia clathratula. The type-series contains Chrysallida clathratula, 

M. 513 and Mus. Cum.,+ Chr. communis+ Chr. effusa, M. 510,+ Dunkeria 

subangulata, M. 537. 

3. Chemmutzia communis, the type of Chrysallida, M. 507, Cpr. (vix A. Ad.). 

The type-series also contains Chr. effusa+ Chr. telescopium, M. 508,+ Dun- 
keria subangulata, +?do. var. 

. Chemnitzia major ranks with Dunkeria. 
. Chemnitzia Panamensis contains also Ch. Adamsii, M. 519,+ Ch. ? gracillima, 

M. 530. 

. Chemnitzia similis, like aculeus ; differs from Ch. ?similis, M. 520, which per- 

haps= Panamensis, vay. 
Chemnitzia turrita=251, “ Rissoa, a ind.” 
235, 237, 238. These species of “ ? Litorina” belong to Fossarus. 

. Litorina atrata+ (adult) 257, PAdeorbis abjecta, are the same (variable) species 

of Fossarina, A. Ad.

. Rissoa firmata+ (jun.) 250, R. scaliformis= Rissoina, sp. M. 409. 
». ? Rissoa inconspicua, C. B. Ad. (non Ald.), does not accord with the diagnosis, 

but is identical with Alvania tumida, M. 414. 

. Lissoa notabilis+ Cingula ?turrita belongs (with 252 and 254) to another 

suborder, = 2arthenia quinquecincta, M. 498. 

2. 2 Cingula inconspicua= Chrysallida ovulum, M. 512. 
. Cingula paupercula=? Odostomia mamillata, M. 492, = Diala. 
4. Cingula terebellum= Parthenia exarata, M. 501. 

Vitrinella minuta, The original type accords better with Ethalia. 
Vitrinella regularis is also an Ethalia. 

Vitrinella valvatoides. Probably an Ethalia. 

271. Are apparently vars. of Solarium granulatum. 

. May be distinguished as Torinia rotundata, from its great superficial resem- 

blance to Helix rotundata. 

5. Trochus Leanus is a pale var. of Callicstoma M‘ Andree. 
» Trochus lima can scarcely be distinguished from C, Antonit, Mus. Cum., 

dredged in the Japan seas by Mr. A. Adams. 

. Trochus lividus, C. B. Ad.,= Modulus disculus, M. 403. 
» Trochus reticulatus= Omphalius viridulus, M. 292. 
» Turbo Buschii, C. B. Ad., = Uvanilla inermis, M. 287,= T. variegatus, Gray, MS. 

in Brit. Mus. The true U. Buschii is coloured outside like U. olivacea, but 
with a white base like U. inermis. St. Elena, Hds. in Brit. Mus. 

» Lurbo phasianella, C, B. Ad., is probably the perlect form of Piasianella, yar. 



striulata, M. 2836. Its operculum proves it to be a true Phasianella, and 
not Melaraphe phasianella, Phil., of Add. Gen. 

283. Turbo rutilus, the worn remains of what perhaps was once Pomaulax undosus, 
brought in ballast from Lower California. 

239. Scalaria, sp. c,= Opalia funceulata, jun., M. 569. 

290. Eulima { Leiostraca] iota appears distinct from LZ. reterta, M. 555, 

292. Lulima | Mucronalia| so itaria= Leiostraca, sp. a, M. 652.

301. Natica, sp. a,=maroccana, var. unifasciata. 

318. ?? Truncatella dubiosa is probably a Paludinella. 

321. Bulla punctulata= B. Adamsx, M. 224. 

322. Bulla, sp.= Tornatina carinata, M. 223. 

323. Vermetus ?glomeratus, C. B. Ad.,= V. eburneus, Rve., M. 354. 

324. Vermetus Panamensis, C. B. Ad.,= Aletes centiquadrus, M. 352. 

325, Stomatella inflata is a Lamellaria. 

326. Hipponyx Psubrufa, C. B. Ad.,= H. Grayanus, jun., M. 350,+?barbatus, jun. 

327. Hipponyx Pbarbata, C. B. Ad. The type-series contains H. barbatus, M. 349, 
+H. Grayanus+ Diseina Cuming, M. 14 (valve). 

330. Calyptrea aberrans is a valve of Anomia. 

831. Calyptrea aspersa= Galerus conicus, broken, worn, and young; one sp. may be 

033. Calyptrea conica. Most of the specimens are G. mamillaris, =340, G. regu- 

laris; but a few may be the true G. conieus, worn, M. 332. 

8. Calyptrea planulata is a young flat C. cepacea. 

2. Calyptrea ?Punguis, C. B. Ad.,= Crucibulum spinosum, jun. 

3. Crepidula cerithicola= C. onyx, jun., M. 340,+C. incurva, jun., M. 339. 

9. Crepidula squama. Some of the young shells belong to C. onyx; one perhaps 

to C. incurva. 

850. Crepidula unguformis. Some of the specimens belong to this species ; others 
to C. nivea. 

851. Crepidula nivea. The type-specimens are small, poor, and rough, of the var. 
striolata, passing into Lessonit. Perhaps, therefore, thefirst name sguama 
should be retained for the species (nos. 348, 349, 350, part, and 351), leaving 
striolata and Lessonii for the vars. 

852. Crepidula osculans belongs to another order, = Scutellina navicelloides, M. 269. 

353. Crepidula rostrata, C. B. Ad., Rve.,= C. uncata, Mke., M. 338 ; and is perhaps 
distinct from C. adunca, Sby.,=solida, Hds.,=rostriformis, Gld. 

357. Fissurella microtrema. Dead shells, of which part= V. rugosa, var. M. 273. 

358. Fissurella mus. Intermediate between Gilyphis inequalis, M. 279, and var. 


361. Rarelc virescens. Intermediate between F. v., M. 271, and F. nigropunctata, 
no. 359. 

366. Siphonaria Ppica, C. B. Ad. Young dead limpets [? Aemea]. 

367. Lottia Ppatina, C. B. Ad. [non Esch.], may stand, until more specimens have 
been collated, as Acemea (?floceata, var.) filosa. 

368. Lotta, sp. ind. a, may be quoted as Acmea (?floccata, var.) subrotundata. 

369. Lottia, sp. ind. 6, may rank, for the present, as Acmea (?vespertina, var.) 

. ? Patella, sp. ind., resembles P. vulgata, but may be an Acmea. 

-376. There was no opportunity of dissecting the Amherst Chitons ; but among 
the remaining duplicates of the collection (all of which were obtained and 
brought to England) were the following :—

L. ?plumula, jun., M. 175. 4 f 

399. Modiola semifusca, C. B. Ad.,=M. Braziliensis, M. 171. More like the Atlantic 
shells than are those from Gulf Cal. A specimen, undoubtedly from N. 
Zealand, is pronounced conspecific by Mr. Cuming. 

400-404. Modiola, sp. ind., contains M. capax, M. 170, Myt. multiformis | =Adam- 
sianus, Dkr.], M. 168, several vars., and Adula cinnamomea, var. M. 177. 

405. Chama Buddiana (in poor condition)=Ch. (?frondosa, var.) fornicata,

414. Arca Paviculoides, C. B. Ad., appears a young Scapharca. 

419. Arca pholadiformis = Barbatia gradata, vay. 

422. Arca similis, scarcely a variety of A. tuberculosa, no. 425. 

432. Cardium planicostatum, ©. B. Ad., may be a worn valve of Hemicardia bian- 
gulata, but more resembles a ballast specimen of the W. Indian H. media. 

35. Venus Pamathusia, C. B. Ad., = Anomalocardia subimbricata, M. 115 

436. Venus discors= Tapes grata, M. 110, var.,+ T. histrionica, M. 109. 

442. Venus, sp. b,= Chione sugillata, Rve. (=Perenifera, M. 105). 

450. Gouldia Pacifica, M. 116, does not belong to the Professor’s genus, but is a 
form of Crassatella. 

451. Cyrena maritima. ‘The discovery of Cyrene in brackish water is a fact of 
some importance to geologists, which was duly appreciated by D’Orb.” (T. 
Prime, in Ann. Lye. N. Y. 1861, p. 314.)

459. Tellina cognata=Psammobia casta, Rve., teste Cuming. 

465. Tellina felix. The affiliation of this shell to Strigilla fucata, Gld., MS., was 
doubtless due to an accidental error in labelling. No. 476 is the same 
species, dead. 

468. Tellina puella. Resembles T. felix, not P?puella, M. 59. 

471. Tellina simulans. The type-valve exactly accords with the Professor's W.- 
Indian specimens. 

473. Tellina viema, C. B. Ad.,=versicolor, C. B. Ad., MS. on label. Larger than 
most W. Indian specimens, which exactly accord with the Acapulcans, and 
are varieties of Heterodonax bimaculatus. The Panamic shells resemble 
the Lower Californian, which are Psammobia Pacifica, Conv. 

477. Petricola cognata. Perfect specimens are P. pholadiformis, teste Cum. 

A478. Saxicava tenuis, Sby., C. B. Ad., H. and A. Ad., = Petricola tenuis, H. and A.

485. Amphidesma bicolor = Semele Prenusta, M. 41 (non A. Ad.). 

4387. Amphidesma proximum, probably =486, ellpticum, var.: not Semele proxima, 
M. 40,=S. flavescens, Gld., M. p. 548. 

489. Amphidesma striosum, resembles Semele puichra, no. 488. 

491. Amphidesma ventricosum. Scarcely perfect enough to distinguish the genus. 
The valve outside resembles Macoma solidula. 

497. Anatina alta. A valve of Periploma; probably one of the Gulf species. 

498. Pandora cornuta, named and described from a fractured growth ; resembles 
Chdiophora claviculata. 

499, 500 are varieties of the same species of Azara, of which perhaps no. 501 is an 
extreme form. 

506. Corbula rubra= C. biradiata, jun., no, 503, M. 31. No. 509 are dead valves 
of the same, = C. polychroma, Cpr.

610. Solecurtus affinis, probably = S. Caribbeus=Siliquaria gibba, Spengl., 8. I. 
Check-List, no. 222. The W. African specimens are afliiiated to the same 
species by Mr. Cuming. The Mazatlan shells, M. 37, have a different 
aspect, but closely resemble the Ariquibo specimens in Mus. Amherst. 

511. Solen rudis is named Solena obliqua, Spengl., in Mus. Cum. It appears iden- 
tical with Ensatella ambigua, Lam., as figured by Deless. ; but S. amligua 
(Lam.), Swains., is slightly different, and better agrees with the dead va.ves 
of “ S. medius, Alatska,” in Brit. Mus. These may, however, be only ballast- 
valves. As S. ambigua, Lam., was described from America, and the form 
is not known elsewhere, it probably represents the Panamic shell. 

515. Pholas, sp. a,=laqueata, teste Cum. 

616. Pholas, sp. 6, closely resembles Dactylina dactylus; also La Paz, teste Rich. 

The following species were collected by Prof. Adams, but do not apperr 
in his Catalogue; they were found either mixed with others in the Amherst 
Museum or in the shell-washings of his duplicates*.

* With regard to the species which have received different designations in the Reigen 
and Adamsian catalogues, whether those names be retained of which the specimens exist, 
and have been widely distributed, in accordance with the diagnoses, or whether the prior 
ones be adopted of which the unique types do not represent the descriptions, is a matter 
of little moment to the writer of the Brit. Mus. Cat. He spared no pains in making-out 
his predecessor’s species before describing his own, and has offered the best attainable

The following species appear in later numbers of the Proceedings :— 

1856 360. Mytilus Adamsianus, Dkr. [= M. multiformis]. Panama, Cuming. 

» 365. Volsella splendida, Dkr. California. 

Dr. Gray, in his elaborate article on the Olivide, 1858, pp. 38 et seq., 
gives O. julieta, Ducl., O. arancosa, Lam., and O. venulata, Lam., as syno- 
nyms of Strephona reticularis. Lam. ; and quotes as ‘species (?) more or less 
allied to it,” O. polpasta, Ducl., O. splendidula, Ducl., “ O. jaspidea, Ducl.,= 
O. Duclosii, Rve.” [?], O. kaleontina, Ducl. (Gallapagos), O. Cumingii, Rve., 
and Oliva Schumacheriana, Beck, “California: front of pillar-lip brown” 
[?=0. Cumingit, var. ]. 

For 0. volutella, Lam. (including O. razamola, Ducl.), he constitutes the 
genus Ramola. 

For O. undatella, Lam. (including O. ?hieroglyphica, Rve., O. nodulina, 
Duel., and O. ozodina, Ducl.), and similar species, he forms the genus 

The restricted genus Olivella is altered to Olivina, and includes (from the 
West Coast) O. gracilis, Sby., O. anazora, Ducl., O. tergina, Ducl., O. lineolata 
=dama, Goodall*; and, in a section, O. columellaris, Sby., O. semisulcata, 
Gray, and O. zonalis, Lam. 

The Californian species, O. biplicata, Sby.,=0. nux, Goodall, in Wood, is 
placed in the genus Scaphula. This is constituted for an animal, “ Olivancilla 
auricularia,’ D’Orb., on which, in his work on 8. America, he figures the 
shell of O. biplicata (teste Gray). The shell might in some way have become 
mixed with 8. American specimens; but as D’Orb. could not possibly have 
there observed the living animal, the genus should be restricted to the latter. 
The shell of O. biplicata is very peculiar, and has not been found south of 
San Diego. D’Orbigny’s genus is Olivancillaria.

In the P. Z. S. 1861, pp. 145-181, is the first part of the long-expected 
“Review of the Vermetide,” by Otto A. L. Morch. The species of the 
West Coast are arranged as follows :—

In the second part of Morch’s “‘ Review of the Vermetide,” 1861, pp. 
326-365, occur the following. A portion of the genus Bivonia is united to 
Spiroglyphus. Petaloconchus, Aletes, and part of Bivonia are united to Ver- 
metus, Morch (non auct.). The name Aletes appears to be used in a varietal 
sense, in no respect according with the subgenus as described by the author. 

* I was perhaps wrong in referring the Mazatlan shells to Val.’s species ; but if Mr. 
Morch is right in his own determination, the Mazatlan synonymy and locality must be 
expunged. There was no evidence of a typical Stphoniwm when the Reigen Catalogue was 
published, nor have I seen such from the whole coast, unless th» minute operculum h, 
Brit. Mus. Col., tablet 2537, be supposed the yqung. Morch says, “ the lid is unknown.” 
The operculum of the similar Mazatlan species, on which the subgenus Aletes was 
founded, is described in Maz. Cat. p. 302. 

+ “Cpr.’s observations respecting Chenu’s plates (Maz. Cat. p. 306, lin. 18) are in part 
erroneous, it being overlooked that Chenu has two plates marked ‘ Y.’;” note *, p. o...

* Mr. Morch has not seen any lamin inside, but, from the 3-5 spiral lire on the 
columella, believes they will be found. The opercula supposed to belong to this speci:s 
(Maz. Cat. p. 311) Mr. M. thinks more probably those of Spiroglyphus albidus. He 
staces (erroneously) that the shell was not opened by the describer. 

+ Morch supposes that Bivonia contorta, Cpr., may be the adult of Petaloconchus 
macrophragma, and that both may be forms of Aletes centiquadrus, The nuclear por- 
tions are, however, quite distinct, and the three shells appear, from beginning to end, as 
far removed as any ordinary Vermetids can be from each other. 

+ The writer doubts respecting this species, and thinks the shell on which it is para- 
sitical to be a Melo, and not Strombus galea, simply because named after Péron, who 
did not visit this district. 43

by the Rev. H. B. Tristram.” But few of the 49 species occur in Mexican 
collections; none are identical with W. Indian species, except such as 
are of universal occurrence in tropical America; and the 16 new species 
show close generic affinities with the shells of the northern regions of S. 
America. The shells have been identified from the Cumingian celiection. 
The new species are described, and some of them figured.

* The present posture of binomial nomenclature is well illustrated in this most elaboe 
rate paper, which few naturalists have professed to understand. ‘The shell of which the 
operculum-spine is figured in plate 25. f. 16, is quoted as “ Siphonium (Stoa) subcre= 
natum, v. spmosa.” ‘he shell described in Maz. Cat. p. 307 is “quoted as ‘“ Vermetus 
(Thylacodus) contortus, var. y. contortula (Thylacodus), forma 1, Thylocodus (?) con 
tortus, var, indentata, Cpr.” Perhaps the sentences of Klein and the early writers are 
more easy to understand and remember, Lhe Chitouide of Middendortl (v. First Report, 
p- 214) are simple in comparison,

groups, that “the characters of the shells are very uncertain, and the intentions of the 
authors still more so.” The names, references, and localities are given on lists to face the

elassify the forms according to their natural affinities. It is rarely that monographers 
and artists take such laudable pains to supply the wants of students. In the monograph 
of Galeomma and Seintilla, however, the locality-marks have not been observed to a 
single species, except the “ British G. Turtoni” and its “ Philippine analogue, G. macro- 
schisma, Desh.” ‘This is the more remarkable, as most of the species were described by 
Desh., with localities, in P. Z. 8. 1855, pp. 167-181. 



In the ‘ Malacological and Conchological Magazine,’ by G. B. Sowerhy, 
London, 1838, is a monograph of Leach’s genus Margarita. The followiug 
probably belong to the N. W. Coast, and are figured in the Conch. LI. :—-

Several West Coast species were named and figured in the elder Sowerby’s 
‘Genera of Recent and Fossil Shells,’ London, 1820-1824; a work of singular 
merit for its time, but left unfinished*. The stock was purchased by a dealer, 
with a view to completion; but newer works have occupied its place, and 
the valuable plates and text remain useless in hishands. As no dates appear 
in the bound copy of the work, it cannot be stated whether the species here 
named by Mr. Sowerby had been before published. ‘The loss of the original 
work has been in some respects supplied by the completion of the extremely 
similar ‘Conchologia Systematica,’ by L. Reeve, vol. i. 1841, vol. 11. 1&42. 
It might almost be considered a second edition of the ‘Genera,’ of which 
some of the plates occur in the quarto form. References are here given to 
the species reproduced from Sowerby’s unfinished work, which is often qucted 
by Mr. Reeve according to the “ Numbers ” in which it appeared :-=

late years been made in the principal authority, viz. the Cumingian collection. By the 
redistribution of species into the modern genera, the student is greatly aided in his search 
for special forms; but, for the sake of uniformity, the autograph labels of collectors or 
describers of species are generally rejected, the names being either in the handwriting of 
the clerk or from the printed index in the monograph, and representing only the judg-

In the Monograph of Terebratulide, which is prepared with unusual care, 
and the general introduction to which is well worth attentive perusal by all 
students, occur the following species which bear upon the West Coast fauna 
or synonymy :— 

2. Terebratula (Waldheimia) dilatata, Lam.,=T. Gaudichaudi, Blainv. “Str 
Magellan,” teste Gray, in Brit. Mus. Cat., without authority. [The E. 5. 
specimens varied considerably in outline ; and according to Darwin, and 
what we know of the variations of fossil species, it is quite possible to 
believe that this and the next species had a common origin. The great 
development of this most interesting form in the cold regions of South 

| America is extraordinary. | 

| 3. Terebratula (Waldheimia) globosa (Val.), Lam., from type. = T. Californica, 

| Koch. California, Coquimbo. Californian form well known; small

excluding Ziziphinus (= Calliostoma), Mr. Reeve “ contrives to place” in Trochus animals 
shown by the opercula to belong to different subfamilies, as though we knew no more than 
in Lamarck’s days ; his motley group containmg Imperator (= Stella, H. and A. Ad.)+ 
Lathopoma + Guildfordia+ Chrysostoma + Bolma + Modelia + Polydonta + Tectus+ 
Pomaulax + Astralium+ Pachypoma+ Uvanilla, Also ina family the genera and species 
of which are mainly recognized by the base and mouth, most of the shells are only figured 
on the back. Very often the characters of the aperture are not even stated. Remarkable 
liberties are, moreover, sometimes taken with geographical facts, to the great astonishment 
of Americans, who expect even their schoolboys to avoid such statements as at sp. 57, 77.

on the Californian coast by any American collector. 
Venus * grata, Sby.,+tricolor, Sby. Gulf of Mexico, Mus. Cum. [= Tapes

These specimens are undoubtedly from the West Coast, nor has any

* Through the kindness of Mr. Reeve, with a view to the completion of this Report, 
T was enabled to compare the figured specimens in this genus with the text, and with 
the shells of the Se collection, before they were distributed. The bracketed notes 
in the text are based on this examination. They are given with unusual detail, because 
of the unique opportunity of throwing some light on a confessedly difficult family. 

+ The characters of the teeth and pallial line frequently afford satisfactory diagnostic 
marks between critical species, which are often overlooked by monographers. 

+ The descriptions of Dr. Kennerley’s shells had long been written, and would have 
been published but for the American war. The localities of all the West Coast shells sent 
from the Smiths, Col. to Mr. Cuming were duly marked in the accompanying catalogues,

_ longer, and in the purple colour. This, however, in the figured speci- 
men, has been brought-out by the free use of acid, and the markings have 
been considerably obliterated by the ‘“ beautifying” process. | 

44, Venus simillima, Sby. San Diego, Cal. “ Resembles V. compta in detail of 
sculpture’ [but perfectly distinct, belonging to the amathusia group. 
It shows the evil of the very brief diagnoses of the earlier conchologists 
that so discriminating an author as Mr. Conrad should have taken tls 
shell for the V. Californiensis, Brod.; and, quoting it (lapsw) as V. Cali- 
forniana, redescribed the true V. Californiensis as V. Nuttallii. It is 
known by the great closeness of the fine sharp ribs. ] 

46. Venus =crenulata, no. 33, very distinct var. Gulf Cal.; more globose, interior 
purple rose. [This was sent as “Cape St. Lucas, Xantus.” It appears 
truly distinct from the W. L. crenulata, and to be the normal form 
of which pulicaria, no. 26, is an extreme var. Inside, and outside in 
the adolescent state, they agree exactly; differing outside, in the adult, 
in smoothed-offribs and more distinct V-markings. Mr. Reeve, however, 
still thinks it more like cren/fera. It may stand as “ ? var. Zilacina.” | 

47. Venus gibbosula, Desh., MS. in Mus. Cum. Hab. ?— | Guaymas:= V. Cortez, 
Sloat. This is the more rounded and porcellanous form of V. fluctifraga, 
=V. Mdtalli of Brit. Assoc. Report, and Nuttallian paper in P. Z. 8.

margin very finely crenated on both sides of the hinge. | 

48, Venus compta, Brod. Bay of Sechura, Peru, coarse sand and mud, 7 fims., 
Cuming. {This rare species seems to represent V. Californiensis in the 
South American fauna. It is well distinguished by its shouldered form, 
produced ventrally, and by the Circoid pallial line, far removed from the 
margin. Guacomayo, Mus. Smiths. | 

49, Venus Nuttall, Conr. California. [Named from type, teste Conr. ips., v. 
anted, p. 526. This is the dull northern form of V. succincta, as flucti- 
Fraga is of gibbosula, the species appearing nearly in the same parallels in 
the Gulf and on the Pacific coast, but not found in the Liverpool Reigen 
Col.; nor at Cape St. Lucas. In all essential characters, Nuttalli (though 

ointed) and Californiensis (though rounded) appear the same; but Mr. 
teeve still thinks otherwise. The figured specimen has been altered with 
acid. The V. exeavata is not noticed by Mr. R. | 

51. Venus mundulus, Rve. Hab. ?— [This shell was obtained by Dr. Stimpson 
in the N. P. Expl. Exp., and bears the Smiths. Cat. number “1845. San 
Francisco, very common at low water,” = Tapes diversa, Sby. jun. This 
is the highly painted, finely sculptured state of 7. staminea, Conr. (not 
“ T. straminea, Cony.” Sby.,= T. grata, var.) The abnormally ridged form 
is V. ruderata, Desh. Conch. Ic. sp. 180. By its large pallial sinus and 
bifid teeth it is a true Tapes. | 

52. Venus intersecta, Sby. Puerto Puero [? Portrero], Centr. Am., Cuming. 
[The shell is exactly identical with no. 19, asperrima=cardioides ; but the 
figure might mislead, the colour-lines appearing as ribs. | 

54. Venus subrostrata, Lam. * yi. p. 343, = V. neglecta, [Gray] Sby. Hab. Mazatlan 
and West Indies. “ Lam. having cited a figure of the China species, V. La- 
marckit, the species was lost sight of till Sby. renamed it.” [The Lamarck- 
tan species was probably West Indian. V. neglecta closely resembles 
the young of V. Californiensis, but has the ligamental area smooth only 
on one valve, instead of both. ] 

59. Venus Stutchburyi (Gray), Wood, Sandwich Is. Comes very near to the 
Californian V’. callosa, [Sby., non] Conr., of which specimens have been 
found also at the Sandwich Is. [V. Stutchburyi is the New Zealand 
species, which may easily be confounded with the Californian. Although 
both may be obtained at the Sandwich Is., there is no evidence that either

between cardivides and fine var. of stanunea; sinus large; teeth strong, 
not bifid; lunule with radiating ribs. | 
68. Venus undatella, Sby. Gulf Calif. {Not a satisfactory species, the type 
having the aspect of a poor specimen altered for cabinet. The “sculpture 
much changing in its development towards the margin” is an accident 
often seen in the cancellated species. Similar specimens of V. neglecta,

in all respects, except that this is violet within, neglecta being white. 
Ligament-area (as in neglecta) smooth in one valve only. |

Xantus. The quotations in Conch. Ic. would lead to the inference that 
“ Xantus ” was regarded as that part of “ California” in which Cape St.

to the West Coast or to special localities, which it has not been considered 
needful to tabulate without confirmation.

European authors not consulted in preparing the first Report.

An excellent commentary on the above species, and on the difficult genus

M. Ducros de St. Germain, Clermont, 1857. It was written, not from the 
well-known London collections, but from a very large series containing all 
the types figured by Duclos. The following is the author’s arrangement of 
the West Coast forms, excluding citations of well-known species.

our knowledge of local faunas, ‘ Mollusques de Vile de la Réunion, par M. 
G. P. Deshayes,’ Paris, 1863, occur very unexpectedly the following species 
connected with the West Coast, either by name or by identity. The list of 
550 species from this little island, which the researches of M. Maillard has

93. Smithsonian Institution.—At the time of the first Report, the tempe- 
rate fauna of the West Coast was only known through sources liable to error, 
the collectors having visited other regions besides Oregon and California, and 
the species described by American authors being but imperfectly understood 
in this country. The large accession to the number of authentic species, the 
uunportant elimination of synonyms, and the assignment of ascertained loca-

the production of the new materials, which are almost entirely from American sources.

lities, which are placed on record in this Report, are due almost entirely to 
the stimulus afforded to science in general, and to this branch especially, by 
the Smithsonian Institution at Washington, D.C. The fund bequeathed by 
Mr. Smithson, “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men,’ 
having been declined by the Universities to which it was offered in the Old 
World, is held (in trust only) by the U.S. Government *. It is administered 
by a permanent body of Regents, according to a constitution drawn-out at 
their instance by the Secretary, Prof. J. Henry, LL.D. It may be safely 
stated that to his unswerving consistency, cautious judgment, and catholic 
impartiality it is mainly owing that, during various political and social 
changes, the Institution has not only steered clear of all party bias in the 
United States, but has distributed its advantages with equal hand on both 
sides of the Atlantic. The Natural History department is under the special 
superintendence of the Assistant-Secretary, Prof. Spencer Baird, M.D., whose 
indefatigable zeal, fertility of resource, and thorough knowledge of the re- 
quirements of the science have enabled the Institution, by a comparatively 
small outlay, not only to amass in a few years an enormous store of accurate 
materials, but also to eliminate from them a series of publications on various 
important branches of American zoology. The contributions of the Smith- 
sonian Institution to our knowledge of the West Coast fauna may be consi- 
dered under [A] its collections and [B] its publications. 

[A] Smithsoian Collections —According to the present law, all collections 
made in expeditions fitted ont by the Government become the property of the 
Smiths. Inst., with liberty to exchange duplicates. Its museum, therefore, 
is rich in types; and its liberal policy allows of all duplicates being trans- 
mitted to public collections, to schools of science, or to individuals engaged 
in special departments of study. Not being forced into an unalterable plan 
of operations, like many leading museums of the Old World, permission was 
given to send nearly the whole of the molluscs to this country, that they 
might be compared with the Cumingian, the Brit. Mus., and other leading 
collections+. The importance of thus establishing a harmony of nomencla- 
ture for species on both sides of the Atlantic can scarcely be over-estimated. 
The previous want of it can be abundantly seen by comparing paragraphs 
39, 43, 54, &c., in the first and in this Report. The West Coast collections 
belonging to the Smiths. Inst. are mainly from the following sources : 

a. The United States Exploring Expedition, under Capt. (afterwards Admiral) 
Wilkes, 1837-1840, v. par. 43. 

6. The North Pacific Exploring Expedition, under Capt. Rogers, 1853-1855. 
Collector, Dr. Stimpson. 

¢. The Pacific Railroad Expedition, 49th parallel, under Governor J. J. 
Stevens, 1853-54. Collections made in Puget Sound by Dr. Suckley, 
and at Columbia River by Dr. J. G. Cooper. Dr. Suckley also collected 
at Panama. 

* The war has but to a limited extent curtailed the funds and interfered with the 
operations of the Institution. 

+ The Cunard Steamship Company have most liberally conveyed these stores across 
the Atlantic, free of cost. The British and American Governments have allowed special 
facilities for passing the Custom Houses without derangement. Similar acts of liberality 
and courtesy are continually afforded to the Smiths. Inst.—The materials for this Report 

have been placed unreservedly in the hands of the writer, although he went to Washing- 
ton as a complete stranger, and with no other introduction than his published writings. 



d. The Pacific Railroad Survey, under Lieutenant R. 8. Williamson, 1853. 
Collector, Dr. A. L. Heermann. 

e. The Pacific Railroad Survey, under Lieutenant R. S. Williamson, 1855, 
Collector, Dr. J. S. Newberry. 

f. United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, under Major W. H. Emory, 
1852. Collector, Arthur Schott. 

g. Colorado Expedition, under Lieutenant J. C. Ives. Collector, Dr. J. 5. 

h. The United States North-West Boundary Survey, under Com. A. Camp- 
bell. Collectors, Dr. Kennerley and Mr. George Gibbs. 

Besides the above official explorations on the American side, during a 
period in which the British Government only fitted out a single expedition 
coordinate with h, the Smiths. Inst. has received a large number of pri- 
vate collections from their correspondents, of which the following are the 
principal :— 

2. Mr. Jas. G. Swan, from Port Townsend, Cape Flattery, Neeah Bay, and the 
neighbouring shores of Vancouver; at intervals, during many years. 

j. Dr. J. G. Cooper, early private collections from Shoalwater Bay and various 
stations in California and from Panama; and lately the dredged collections 
of the California State Geological Survey, of which a portion were sent 
in advance by Dr. Palmer. 

k. California Academy of Natural Sciences, duplicates of their collection, 
with the privilege of inspecting unique specimens. 

1. Dr. E. Vollum, U.S.A., from Fort Umpqua. 

m. Lieutenant W. P. Trowbridge, from coast of Oregon and California. 

n. Dr. J. A. Veatch, from the peninsula of Lower California, and especially 
from Cerros Island. 

o. Mr. A. 8. Taylor, from Monterey. 

p- Mr. Andrew Cassidy, from 8. Diego. 

g. Rev. J. Rowell, now of San Francisco, from various stations in both faunas, 
and especially from Sta. Crux, and the Farallones Is. 

r. Mr. John Xantus, of the U.S. Coast Survey, from Cape St. Lucas. Speci- 
mens were received through him from Socorro Island (one of the Revilla- 
gigedo group), Tres Marias and Margarita Island. 

s, Captain C. P. Stone, from Guaymas and the northern part of the Gulf of 

t. Captain C. M. Dow, from the coast of Central America. 

u Dr. J. H. Sternberg, from Panama. 

. Dr. J. H. Frick, Mr. James Hepburn, and others, from San Francisco. 

w Mr. C. N. Riotte, U. S. Minister to Costa Rica, from Puntas Arenas. 

5. Mr. W. H. Pease, of Honolulu, collections made by his agents at various 

stations on the coast, particularly at Margarita Bay. 

Collections have also been received from various expeditions already tabu- 
lated in the first Report; and from stray quarters not here included because 
their accuracy may admit of doubt. The species received from the most im- 
portant of these sources will be enumerated in their order ; of the remainder, 
exact lists may be consulted by the student in the Smithsonian Catalogues, 
and the combined results will be found tabulated as ‘ Pacific Railroad Expe- 
ditions’ or ‘Smithsonian Collections.’ 

[B] Smithsonian Publications—These may be classed under three heads. 
(1.) Works published by the U. 8. Government, with more or less of assist- 
ance derived from and through the Smiths. Inst. (2.) The ‘Smithsonian 
Contributions to Knowledge,’ printed in 4to, and answering to the ‘Trans-

actions’ of English learned societies; and (3.) The ‘Miscellaneous Collece 
tions,’ in 8vo, answering to the ‘ Proceedings’ of the societies :— 

(1.) The series of ten 4to volumes, called ‘ Pacific Railroad Reports,’ con- 
tains a complete résumé of the natural history of the western slope of North 
America. The Recent and Tertiary Fossil Mollusca will be analyzed in the 
following pages. Accounts have also been published of the natural history 
of other expeditions.—The annual volumes of ‘ Reports of the Regents of the 
Smithsonian Institution,’ published by the U. 8. Government, contain exact 
accounts of the assistance rendered to the expeditions by the Smiths. Inst., 
as well as lectures and articles on special subjects. In these will be found 
full particulars of the principles which regulate the natural-history workings 
of the Institution*. 

(2.) The only paper bearing on our present inquiry as yet published in 
the ‘ Contributions’ is on the “ Invertebrata of the Grand Manan,” by Dr. W. 
Stimpson, which should be consulted by all who desire to institute a compa- 
rison between the sub-boreal faunas on the two sides of the Atlantic. 

(3.) The ‘Miscellaneous Collections’ are all stereotyped, and very freely 
circulated. Among them will be found “ Directions ” for collecting specimens 
of natural history, with special instructions concerning the desiderata on the 
Pacific coasts. These have been widely distributed among the various go- 
vernment officials, the employés of the U. S. Coast Survey, and the variously 
ramified circulating media at the command of the Smiths. Inst.; and have 
already borne a fair share of important results, although the war has 
greatly impeded the expected prosecution of natural-history labours. ‘“ Check 
lists” have been published ‘of the Shells of North America, by 1. Lea, 
P. P. Carpenter, W. Stimpson, W. G. Binney, and T. Prime,” June 1860. Ne. 
1 contains the Marine Shells of the “‘ Oregonian and Californian Province,” 
and No. 2 of the “ Mexican and Panamic Province.” They are chiefly com- 
piled from the first British Association Report, with such elimination of sy- 
nonyms and doubtful species, and addition of fresh materials, as had become 
available up to the date of publication. They were not intended to be quoted 
as authorities; and so rapid has been the accumulation of fresh information 
that no. 1 is already out of date. In the “ Terrestrial Gasteropoda,” by W. 
G. Binney, list no. 1 contains the “ species of the Pacific coast, from the ex- 
treme north to Mazatlan,’ to which many additions have since been made. 
In the list of “ Fluviatile Gasteropoda,” also by W. G. Binney, ‘ the letter W 
distinguishes those confined to the Pacific coast, WE is affixed to those 
found in both sections of the continent, and M designates the Mexican 
species. From the starting-point of this list considerable progress has 
already been made. In the brief list of “Cyclades, by Temple Prime,” the 
Mexican and Central American species are similarly designated; but the 
western species and those common to the Pacific and Atlantic United States 
are not distinguished. In the list of “‘ Unionide,” by Dr. I. Lea, whose life- 
long devotion to the elucidation of that family is everywhere gratefully 
acknowledged, the Pacific species are designated by a P. The large series 

* The ‘Lectures on Mollusca,’ in the Vol. for 1860, pp. 151-283, will perhaps be found 

_ useful as a digest of classical forms. It was to have been illustrated with copies of woodcuts, 

kindly promised by Dr. Gray, and since placed at the disposal of the Smiths. Inst. by the 
courtesy of the Trustees of the British Museum ; but, unfortunately, the blocks were not 
to be found at the time. They will appear, however, in forthcoming Smithsonian publi- 
cations. The ‘Lecture on the Shells of the Gulf of California,’ in the Vol. for 1859, 
pp. 195-219, contains in a popular form much of the information distributed throvgh the

of specimens, representing varieties and ages, in Dr. Lea’s private collection 
are well deserving of close study. Their owner shares the liberality of Mr. 
Cuming in making them available for all purposes of scientific inquiry. 

The Smiths. Inst. has just issued from the press the first part of the 
‘Bibliography of North American Conchology, previous to the year 1860,’ by 
W. G. Binney, containing references to all printed information on North 
American shells by native writers. Itis divided into Ҥ A. American descrip- 
tions of North American molluscs; § B. American descriptions of foreign 
molluscs; § C. Descriptions of foreign species by American authors in foreign 
works.” The work is prepared with unusual care and completeness, and 
with the accurate judgment which characterizes all Mr. Binney’s writings. 
It contains, under every separate work or paper, “a list of species therein 
described or in any important manner referred-to, together with their syno- 
nymy, locality, and the volume, page, plate, and figure relating to them.” 
The second part, containing similar references to American species described 
by European writers, is now passing through the press. Mr. Binney has 
most kindly sent the proofs to the writer (as far as p. 287), which have been 
freely used in preparing this Report, and have supplied various important 
sources of information. It undertakes to provide for the whole North American 
continent what has been here attempted for the West Coast; and in much 
greater detail, as not only the first description, but all subsequent quotations 
are duly catalogued. It may be regarded as a complete index of references 
to all works on North American malacology. The student, in making use 
of it, will remember that it is only with the Pulmonates that Mr. Binney 
professes an intimate acquaintance. For these the work may be regarded as 
complete. But, in other departments of the science, only those shells which 
are assigned by the authors to North America are quoted; consequently a 
large number of species are passed-over which are truly American, but are 
assigned to other places, or described without locality. Also, species really 
belonging to other faunas, but falsely attributed to North America, duly 
appear as though genuine; and the additional localities frequently assigned 
by the authors (which are often the real habitats) are seldom quoted. More- 
over the citations stop at Mazatlan; consequently, the tropical fauna of the 
West Coast is but imperfectly represented. Lastly, the authors are not pre- 
sented in chronological or indeed in any other ostensible order; but it is pro- 
mised that the necessary information will be given in the index on the com- 
pletion of the work. The student will further bear in mind that for many 
reasons no second-hand reference can serve the same purpose as a consultation 
of the original beok. With these cautions the work will be found invaluable 
by all who are engaged in working-out American species; and great thanks 
are due to Mr. Binney for undertaking the extreme labour of its compilation, 
and to the Smiths. Inst. for supplying the expense of its publication. Probably 
no such work has yet been printed on the malacology of any other country. 

Lastly, there is now in preparation a complete series of hand-books on 
North American malacology, copiously illustrated with wood engravings, and 
containing a digest of all that is known in each department. The marine 
shells of the Atlantic are being described by Dr. Stimpson, who is now also 
engaged in the dissection of the Freshwater Rostrifers; the marine shells of 
the Pacific are placed in the hands of the writer; the Pulmonates will be 
thoroughly worked-out by Mr. Binney, the Melaniade by Mr. Tryon, and

the Cycladidee by Mr. Prime. Thus it appears that the malacologists have 
been unusually zealous in advancing their before somewhat slumbering study ; 
and that the Smiths. Inst. has displayed unexpected liberality in preparing 
and issuing from the press works of a comprehensive character, for the “‘ in- 
crease and diffusion of” what will hereafter be regarded as an important 
branch of ‘knowledge among men.” 

94. North Pacific Exploring Expedition——In the year 1853, Dr. W. 
Stimpson, well known in very early life for his dredging-researches and ob- 
servations on the marine animals of the Atlantic coast, accompanied Captain 
Ringold as naturalist to the U.S. “ North Pacific Exploring Expedition.” Its 
principal object was to obtain more correct information with regard to the 
Japan seas and the extreme north of the Pacific, and it was only incidentally 
that it visited the Californian proyince. However, Dr. Stimpson’s extensive 
dredgings in the fiords of Japan developed the interesting fact, that while the 
southern shores presented a fauna essentially Indo-Pacific in its character, 
and abounding in the usual Cones, Cowries, Olives, &c., the northern slopes 
of the same islands presented an assemblage of forms far more analogous to 
the fauna of the Sitka and Vancouver region, and containing many species 
common to the American coast. During the course of the voyage dredging- 
collections+ were made by Dr. Stimpson at Madeira, Cape of Good Hope, Sydney 
Harbour, Coral Seas, Port Jackson, Hong Kong (also by Mr. Wright; New Ire- 
land, Lieut. Van Wycke; Gasper Straits, Squires ; vicinity of Canton, presented 
by Mr. Bowring; interior of Hong Kong, Wright); China Sea; Whampoa ; 
Bonin Island; Loo Choo Island; Ousima; Katonasima Straits; Kikaia; 
Kikaisima ; Kagosima {alas!]; Hakodadi ; Taniogesima (also Wright, Kent, 
Kern, Boggs, Carter); Simoda; Niphon (also Brook); Arvatska Bay, Kamt- 
schatka; Amincheche Island, Avikamcheche Island, Behring Straits; Senia- 
vine Straits, Arctic Ocean (also Captain Rogers); San Francisco; (Puget Sound 
and Shoalwater Bay, Dr. Cooper, Cat. no. 1849-1856); Tahiti (also Captain 
Stephens, Kern), Hawaii (also Garrett; Sea of Ochotsk, Captain Stevens). All 
these were duly catalogued, with stations, depths, and other particulars, and 
living animals preserved in spirits after being drawn. The expedition appears 
to have returned in 1856. Although Dr. Stimpson devoted his chief attention 
to articulate animals, and molluscs occupied but a subordinate share of his 
attention, it is safe to say that in this short period he collected more trust- 
worthy species of shells, with localities, than were received at the Smiths. 
Inst. from the united labours of the naturalists of Captain Wilkes’s celebrated 
expedition. Through some unaccouutable cause, certain of the most valuable 
boxes were ‘‘ lost” between New York and Washington ; the remainder were 
placed in the hands of Dr. Gould for description, with the MS. catalogue, a 
copy of which forms the “ Mollusca, Vol. I.,” nos. 1-2003, of the Smiths. 
Mus. Fortunately, Dr. Gould embraced the opportunity to bring the un- 
certain shells to London, and compare them with the Cumingian Collection, 

+ A fuller account of this expedition is here given than is justified from its contributions 

to the W. American fauna, because no other information respecting it is as yet available 
to the malacological student. 


Thus a large body of species, named from types, was prepared for the New 
World ; but, unfortunately, through imperfect packing and the practice of 
marking by numbers only, much of the value of this identification was lost. 

The new species were described by Dr. Gould in the ‘ Boston Proc. Soc. Nat. 

Hist.,’? 1859-1861; and on completion of the series, the author collected 

the papers embodying the new species of the two great scientific expeditions, 

as well as his other scattered publications, and issued them in a most valuable 
book, entitled ‘ Otia Conchologica: Descriptions of Shells and Molluscs, from 

1839-1862, Boston, 1862; with “Rectifications,’ embodying such changes of 

nomenclature and synonyms as he desired to represent his matured views. 

In quoting Dr. Gould’s writings, therefore, this table should always be con- 

sulted. A considerable portion of the specimens have been returned to the 

Smiths. Inst., of which the larger species are mounted in the collection, and 

the smaller ones have been sent to the writer to compare with those collected 

by Mr. A. Adams,which were unfortunately being described in the London 
journals almost simultaneously. The war has unhappily postponed the in- 
tention of publishing the complete lists of species collected and identified with 
so much accurate care. The following, however, have already been deter- 
mined by Dr. Gould from the region in which American species occur. The 
list is given entire (so far as identified), because species as yet known only 
on one coast of the North Pacific may hereafter be found on the other. It 
contains (as in the comparison of the Caribbean and West Mexican fauna) 

(@) species certainly identical, (6) probably identical, (c) “‘interesting ana- 

gues,” and (d) representative forms.

95. The United States Expedition to Japan, under Commodore M. C. Perry, 
1852-4, was not undertaken for scientific purposes ; and no special provision 
was made either for collecting or describing objects of natural history. A 
large number of shells, however, were obtained, and identified by Dr. Jay of 
New York. In Vol. II. of the ‘ Narrative of the Expedition, dre.’ (Washing- 
ton, 1856, pp. 289-297) is given a list of Japanese shells, with descriptions and 
figures of the (supposed) new species. The following are related to the mal- 
luses of the West Coastt. Specimens of the most important may be seen 
in the Cumingian Collection.

sumed that the learned author did not open a specimen. 

+ The student should also consult, for related forms, the ‘ Mollusca Japonica’ by Dr. 
W. Dunker, Stuttgart, 1861 ;—like all the other works of the same author, most valuable 
for the patient care, accurate judgment, and enlarged experience displayed; but relating 
chiefly to the subtropical portion of the fauna,

96. At the time that Dr. Gould was describing Dr. Stimpson’s Japanese 
shells in the Boston Proc. Ac. N. 8., Mr. A. Adams, R.N., one of the learned 
authors of the ‘Genera of Recent Mollusca,’ was making extensive and accu- 
rate dredgings in the same seas. The new genera and species have been and 
are being published, in a series of papers, in the Ann. & Mag. Nat. Hist. and 
in the Proc. Zool. Soc., preparatory to an intended complete work on the 
mollusc-fauna of the Eastern North Pacific. The collections of Mr. Adams 
have already displayed the Japanese existence of several species, as Siphonalia 
Kellettir, Solen sicarius, Homalopoma sanguineum, &c., before supposed to be 
peculiar to the West coast. Unfortunately for our present purpose, while 
the comparison of specimens was going on, Mr. Adams was unexpectedly 
called to service on board H.M.S. ‘ Majestic,’ and was obliged to pack up his 
collections. Enough has been ascertained, however, to prove that it will be 
unsafe henceforth to describe species from either coast without comparison 
with those of the opposite shores. 

97. Pacific Railroad Reports.—As it is necessary, in studying any fauna, 
to make comparisons far round in space, so it is essential to travel far back 
in time. The fullest account of the fossils of the West Coast of America is 
to be found in the ‘ Explorations and Surveys for a Railroad Route from the 
Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean,’ which form ten thick quarto volumes, 
copiously illustrated with plates, and published by the U.S. Senate, Wash- 
ington, 1856*. The natural-history department was conducted under the 
superintendence and with the aid of the Smithsonian Institution; and science 
is under special obligations to Prof. Spencer 8. Baird, the Assistant Secre- 
tary, for his Reports on the Vertebrate Animals. It would hardly be ex- 
pected in Europe that the best réswmé of the zoology, the botany, and the 
geology of the vast region between the Great American desert and the Pacitic 
should be found in a railroad survey. Unfortunately, it has not been the 
custom to advertize and sell the valuable documents printed at the expense 
of the U.S. Government, in the ordinary channels of trade. They often become 
the perquisites of the members cf Congress, and through them of the various 
employés, by whom they are transferred to the booksellers’ shelves. ‘Ihe 
fifth volume of the series is devoted to the explorations of Lieut. Williamson ; 
the second Part contains the Report by W. P. Blake, geologist and minero- 
logist of the expedition. In the Appendix, Art. IT., are found “ Descrip- 
tions of the Fossil Shells,” by T. A. Conrad. They were first published in the

* The existence of Eocene strata on the Pacific slope is ascertained by a single boulder 
of very hard sandstone, which, though very small, furnished fifteen species. Of these, 
three correspond with forms fram Claiborne, Alabama; and the “ finger-post of the 
Eocene” appears in its usual abundance. Mr. Conrad characterizes the specimens as 
“beautifully perfect ;’ which would not have been supposed from his descriptions and 
figures. They “seem to indicate a connexion of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during 
the Eocene period ;” and the author expects that ““when the rock shall have been disco- 
vered and imvestigated in situ, fresh forms will be obtained, with which we are already , 
familiar in eastern localities.”

* Mr. Conrad regards the “ coriaceous cup as characteristic of the genus.” It appears 
a subgenus of Pholadidea, differing m the form of the plate. Mr. ‘Tryon, “ Mon. Pho- 
lad.,” p. 66, restricts it to the Penitella penita, which (according to his diagnosis) has 
one central and two anterior dorsal plates. The closely related P. ovotdea he leaves in 
the original genus, as having “ two dorsal accessory valves,” although he allows that “its 
position cannot be accurately determined on account of the loss of its dorsal valves.” 
Conrad’s fossil has the shape of P. ovoidea; but although he says that it is “ widely dis- 
tinct” trom P. penita, 1am unable to separate it from the ovoid form of that species, 
which will be found in the Smithsonian series. 

+ This is certainly Sowerby’s species, to which Conrad gives a doubting reference. In 
the text he gives it as “ spinosum, Conr.,” in his table marking it as “ nov. sp.” 

t Conrad compares N. interstriata to N. trivittata, Say, and N. Pedroana to N. lunata, 
Say,and states that the two Atlantic species are “associated with each other both in the sea 
and in the Miocene deposits of Virginia and Maryland.” As the two correlative species 
are found together, living and fossil, on the Pacific side, there is presumptive evidence for 
their having descended from a common stock.

Mr. Conrad, than whom there is no higher authority for American Tertiary 
fossils, considers the age of the Eocene boulder ascertained; and that “the 
deposits of Santa Barbara and San Pedro represent a recent formation, in 
which (¢este Blake) the remains of the Mammoth occur: and the shells indi- 
cate little, if any, change of temperature since their deposition.” But he 
acknowledges that the intermediate beds are of uncertain age. Those on 
Carrizo Creek he refers to the Miocene, some characteristic species being 
either identical with the Eastern Miocene or of closely releted forms. In 
addition to the species tabulated in this Report, he quotes, as having been 
collected in California by Dr. Heermann, “ Mercenaria perlaminosa, Conr., 
scarcely differing from M. Ducatelii, Conr.; and a Cemoria, Pandora, and 
Cardita of extinct species, closely analogous to Miocene forms.” The casts 
from Ocoya Creek were too friable to be preserved, and are figured and de- 
scribed from Mr. Blake’s drawings; these also are regarded as Miocene. The 
San Diegan specimens are too imperfect for identification ; they are referred 
to the Miocene by Conrad, but may perhaps be found to belong to a later 

* Several fossils are figured in plates vii. and viii.,.to which no reference is made in the 
text. It is unsafe to conjecture the genus to which many of them belong, but it is pre- 
surned that they relate to the indeterminate species here quoted.

perfect to determine specifically with any confidence ; and by no means it. o 
suitable condition to allow of important conclusions being drawn from them. 
98. The third article in the Appendix to the same volume of Reports 
contains a “Catalogue of the Recent Shells, with Descriptions of the New 
Species,” by Dr. A. A. Gould. The specimens were (apparently) in the hands 
of Dr. Gould for examination when he prepared the MS. for the first Report; 
and some of them were included in the ‘‘ Mexican War Collections,” B. A. 
eport, pp. 227, 228. “The freshwater shells were collected in the Colorado 
desert and other localities ; the land and marine shells between San Francisco 
and San Diego.” The following is the list of species as determined by Dr. 
Could, pp. 330-336. The specimens belong to the Smithsonian Institution, 
where a large portion of them were fortunately discovered and verified. 
They were collected by W. P. Blake, Esq., and Dr. T. H. Webb.

1860 in the Smithsonian Museum by Prof. J. 8. Newberry, M.D., a natu- 
ralist of rare experience and accomplishments, and author of ‘‘ Reports on 
the Geology, Botany, and Zoology of Northern California and Oregon.” Wash- 
ington, 1857. They are embodied in vol. vi. of the ‘ Pacific Railroad Re- 
ports.’ The following is a list of the fossils, which were described by 
Mr. Conrad in pp. 69-73, having first appeared in the Proceedings of the 
Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, Dec. 1856, to which pagc-refer-

The northern fossils are supposed by Mr. Conrad to be of the Miocene period, 
and not to be referable to existing species. Those from Sta. Barbara, however, 
are clearly of a very recent age, and probably belong to the beds searched by 
Col. Jewett. But by far the most interesting result of Dr. Newberry’s ex- 
plorations was the discovery of the very typical Pacific shell, Malea ringens, 
in the Tertiary strata on the Atlantic slope of the Isthmus of Darien, not 
many miles from the Caribbean Sea. The characters of this shell being such 
as to be easily recognized, and not even the genus appearing in the Atlantic, 
it is fair to conclude that it had migrated from its head waters in the Pacific 
during a period when the oceans were connected. We have a right, there- 
fore, to infer that during the lifetime of existing species there was a period 
when the present separation between the two oceans did not exist. We 
may conclude that species as old in creation as Malea ringens may be found 
still living in each ocean; and there is, therefore, no necessity for creating 
‘“‘ representative species,” simply because, according to the present configu- 
ration of our oceans, we do not see how the molluses could have travelled to 
unexpected grounds. 

100. In vol. vu. of the Pacific Railroad Reports, part 2, is the Geological 
Report, presented to the Hon. Jefferson Davis, then Secretary of War, by 
Thos. Antisell, M.D. He states reasons for believing that during the Eocene 
period the Sierra Nevada only existed as a group of islands; that its final 
uplifting was after the Miocene period ; and that during the whole of that 



period the coast-range was entirely under water. The Miocene beds ar¢ 
above 2000 feet in thickness, and abound in fossils generally distinct from 
those of the eastern strata. There is nothing in Calitornia answering to the 
Northern Drift of the countries bordering on the Atlantic. The molluscs of 
Dr. Antisell’s Survey were described by Mr. Conrad, pp. 189-196. He 
remarks that “the fossils of the Estrella Valley and Sta. Inez Mountains are 
quite distinct from those of the Sta. Barbara beds, and bear a strong resem- 
blance to the existing Pacific fauna. The Miocene period is noted, both in 
the eastern and western beds, for the extraordinary development of Pecti- 
nide, both in number, in size, and in the exemplification of typical ideas.” 
It also appears to be peculiarly rich in Arcade, which are now almost 
banished from that region, while they flourish further south.- The large 
Amusium caurinum and the delicate Pecten hastatus of the Vancouver district, 
as well as the remarkable Janira dentata of the Gulf, may be regarded as a 
legacy to existing seas from the Miocene idea; otherwise the very few 
Pectinids which occur in collections along the whole West Coast of North 
America is a fact worthy of note. Mr. Conrad has “no doubt but that the 
Atlantic and Pacific oceans were connected at the Eocene period ; ” and the 
fossils here described afford strong evidence that the connexion existed during 
the Miocene epoch. All the species here enumerated (except Pecten deserti 
and ‘‘ Anomia subcostata”’) were believed to be distinct from those collected 
by the preceding naturalists.

As before, the fossils appear to be in very bad condition. The succeeding 
paleontologists who have to identify from them are not to be envied. Then 
principal value is to show what remains in store for future explorers. The 
extreme beauty of preservation in the fossils collected by Col. Jewett, rivalling 
those of the Paris Basin, and sometimes surpassing the conspecific lving 
shells, makes us astonished that so large a staff of eminent men, employed 
by the Government, made such poor instalments of contribution to malacolo- 
gical science. The plan, too often followed, of remunerating naturalists, not 
according to the skilled labour they bestow, but according to the number ot 
“new species” they describe, is greatly to be deprecated. Further knowledge 
concerning the old species may be more important in scientific inquiries than 
the mere naming of new forms. It is generally a much harder task to per- 
form, and, therefore, more deserving ot substantial as well as of honourable 

101. The shells collected on the North Pacific Railroad Survey were in- 
trusted to W. Cooper, Esq., of Hoboken, New Jersey, for description: Dr. 
a | Gould being occupied with preparing the diagnoses of the N. Pacific K. EK. 
species. Judge Cooper was at that time the only naturalist in America known 
to be actively engaged in studying the marine shells of the West Coast, of 
which he has a remarkably valuable collection. He had rendered very valu- 
able service to the Smithsonian Institution by naming their speamens. Un- 
fortunately, there is such great difficulty even in New York city (of which 
Hoboken is a suburb) in obtaining access to typically named shells, as well as 
to many necessary books *, that, notwithstanding the greatest care, errors of 
determination are almost sure to arise. 

The “ Report upon the Mollusca collected on the Survey, by Wm. Cooper,” 
forms No. 6 of the Appendix, pp. 369-386, and errata. (Unfortunately the 

* Both Judge Cooper and Dr. Lea informed me (1860) that they had not been able 
even to see a copy of the plates to the U.S. Expl. Exped. Mollusca. Through special 
favour, | was enabled to obtain a series of the proofs to work by. The Smithsonian 
Institution, though intrusted with the keeping of the collections, was not favoured 
with a copy until after the war began, when the whole series was granted by Congress. 
Judge Cooper had derived great assistance from the British Association Report, and 
has communicated many corrections in it. In the alterations of synonymy, and in 
defining the limits of specific variation, I have had the benefit of his counsel and ex- 
perience; and have rarely felt compelled to differ from him. Having himself collected 
extensively in the West Indies, he had excellent opportunities of comparing fresh 
specimens from the now separated oceans. I was fortunate enough to meet his son, 
Dr. J. G. Cooper, at the Smithsonian Institution, and to examine the types of the 
species he collected (which are here enumerated) with the advantage of his memory 
and knowledge. His later contributions to the malacology of W. America will be 
afterwards enumerated: his valuable Treatise on the Forests and Trees of North 
America will be found in the Smithsonian Reports, 1858, pp. 246-280.

One specimen on the shore of Whidby’s Island. Straits of De Fuca, J. G. 
Cooper. [= Bue. liratum, Mart. This being a remarkable instance of a 
“representative species,” it requires to be minutely criticized. Judge 
Cooper compared his specimen with 130 eastern shells, and noted the differ- 
ences with great fulness and accuracy. <A series of Middendorff’s Pacific 
shells having been brought to England by Mr. Damon, and sold at high 
prices, I made a searching comparison of one of them with the eastern 
specimens furnished me by Judge Cooper and other most trusty naturalists. 
According to the diagnosis of Middendorffii, it should be referred to C. de- 
cemcostatus, Say, and not to the De Fuca species, as it agrees in all respects 
with the eastern peculiarities quoted, except that the riblets near the canal 
are rather more numerous and defined. As it might be suspected that 
Mr. Damon’s shells were mixed, I have made a similar comparison with a 
shell from the N. W. coast, sent to the Smiths. Inst. by Mr. Pease, and with 
the same result. On examining the specimens in the Cumingian Collection, 
in company with A. Adams, Esq., we were both convinced that the eastern 
and western forms could not be separated. In the similar shells collected 
by Mr. Adams in the Japan seas there are remarkable variations in the de- 
tails of sculpture. |}

inhabiting sandy mud, a few inches below the surface. The Indians feel 

for them with a knife or sharp stick with great expertness. In July many

form, “with rough concentric striz and brown disc,’ is Conrad’s species ; 
“others from Oregon are much smoother, without regular strive.” These are 
S. squalidus, Desh. Dr. Cooper found “a fossil variety, in coast-banks 10 
feet above sea-level, which is well figured in Midd. and (less distinctly) by 
Desh. A Californian specimen measures 4°8 in. across.” The fossils, through 
disintegration, often assume the aspect of Venus Kennerleyi, the former 
oe remaining as vyarical ridges, while the softer interstices have

a chief article of winter stores to the Indians, who string and smoke them 
in their lodges. Length, 75 in. The burrows are found in the cliffs, 10 feet 
above high water, with all the other Mollusca now living; and two, not 
now found, were then common [viz. ?...]. Th» Indians have no tradition 
as to the elevation, and the ancient trees show no signs of the irregular 
upheavings which raised the former levels of low water, by successive

The above list must be considered as a résumé, not merely of the shells of the 
N. P. Railroad Survey, but also of all those examined by Judge Cooper, from 
the Smithsonian Museum and from his own private collection. It is pecu- 
liarly valuable as preserving the notes concerning station, &c., of the original 
explorers, and has therefore required a more lengthened analysis. 

The land-shells collected by Dr. Newberry in the Pacific Railroad Survey were 
described by W. G. Binney, Esq., with his accustomed accuracy. His paper 
will be found in the Reports, vol. vi. pp. 111-114. The following are the 
only species enumerated :— 


1. Helix fidelis, Gray, Chem., Pfr., Rve.,= H. Nuttalhana, Lea, Binney, sen., De 
Kay. Portland, Oregon, Newberry. Local. 

2. Helix infumata, Gld., Proc. Bost. N. H. 8., Feb. 1855, p. 127. Hills near 
San Francisco, Newberry. Extremely rare. 

3. Helix eruginosa, Gld., var. B. loc. cit. North of San Francisco, Newberry. 

4. Helix Dupetithouarsi, jun., Desh., Chem., Pfr., Rve.,= H. Oregonensis, Lea, 
Pfr. San Francisco, Benicia, Cal.; Klamath Lake, Oregon; Newberry. “One 
of the commonest and most widely distributed species of the Pacific region.” 

102. The U.S. Government also sent out a “ North-west Boundary Com- 
mission,” in charge of Archibald Campbell, Esq. The natural-history 

arrangements were superintended by the Smithsonian Inst., and Dr. C. B. R. 

Kennerly was appointed naturalist to the Expedition. At his request, I 

undertook to prepare a Report of the Mollusca, to be published and illustrated 

in a form corresponding to the Pacifie Railroad Reports; Dr. Aleock kindly 
undertaking to dissect the animals, and Mr. Busk to examine the Polyzoa. 

Dr. Kennerly died on his return from a three years’ exploration; and the 

civil war has thus far delayed any further publication. The materials have, 

however, been thoroughly investigated. They consist principally of dredg- 

ings in Puget Sound. On reference to the maps published by the U. 8. 

Coast Survey, it will be seen that this inland sea consists of a remarkable 

labyrinth of waters, fiord within fiord, and only indirectly connected with 

the currents of the Pacific Ocean. It might therefore be expected to furnish 
us with the species of quiet migration, and perhaps with those still living 
from a period of previous altered conditions. No doubt it will furnish new 
materials to reward the labours of many successsive naturalists. The pre- 



602 REPORT—1863. 

maturely closed investigations of Dr. Kennerley are only the beginning of a 
rich harvest. Dr. George Suckley, late assistant-surgeon of the U.S. army, 
was appointed to complete the natural-history work, after his lamented 
death. A complete list of the species collected will be found in the fifth column 
of the Vancouver and Californian table, v. infra, par. 112. The particulars 
of station, &e., and all the knowledge which the laborious explorer had col- 
lected, are lost to science. It is quite possible that some of the species here 
accredited to Puget Sound were obtained in neighbouring localities in the 
Straits of De Fuca. The specimens are in beautifully fresh condition, and 
of most of them the animals were preserved in alcohol. The following are the 
shells first brought from the Vancouver district by the American N. W. 
Boundary Commission, the diagnoses of new species being (according to 
custom) first published in the Proceedings of the Ac. Nat. Sc. Philadelphia.

A well-marked group in the genus, 

Besides adding more than 70 marine species to the Vancouver branch of the 
Californian fauna, from specimens in good condition, without a single bal- 
last or exotic admixture, the confirmation of many species, which before 
rested only on the uncertain testimony of the U.S. E. E. labels, and the 
affiliation of others which, on the same testimony, had been wrongly assigned 
to distant and erroneous localities, was no slight benefit to science. The 
iand and freshwater species of the Expedition will be found tabulated, with 
others, in the separate lists; par. 115.

60+ REPORT—1863. 

ploring the regions south of the political boundary, similar explorations, on 

a less extensive scale, were being made under the direction of the British 

Government. The naturalist to the British North American Boundary Com- 

mission, during the years 1858-1862, was J. K. Lord, Esq., F.Z.S. He made a 

very valuable collection of shells in Vancouver Island and British Columbia, 

the first series of which was presented to the British Museum. The new 
species were described by W. Baird*, Esq., M.D., F.L.S., in a paper com- 
municated to the Zool. Soc., and published in its ‘ Proceedings,’ Feb. 10th, 

1863, pp. 66-70.—Another series of shells, from the same district, was pre- 

sented to the Brit. Mus. by the Lords of the Admiralty, collected by Dr. Lyall, 

of H. M. Ship ‘ Plumper.’ Two new species from this collection were describcd 
by Dr. Baird, in a separate paper, P. Z.8., Feb. 10th, 1863, p.71. The new 
species from Mr. Lord’s collections have been drawn on stone by Sowerby. 

The figure-numbers here quoted correspond with the proof-copy kindly fur- 

nished by Dr. Baird.— A third series was collected by Dr. Forbes, R.N., in the 

same Expedition. After Mr. Cuming had made his own selections, this passed 
into the ordinary London market. It contained several species of peculiar 
interest. The following are the (supposed) new species of the Survey :—

* It is due to the memory of Dr. Kennerley, as well as to the other natnralists con- 
nected with the various American surveys, and the officers of the Smiths. Inst., who so 
generously entrusted to the writer their unique specimens for comparison with the 
London museums, to state, that (with two exceptions) the new marine species of the 
British Survey would have been published long before the appearance of Dr. Baird’s 
paper, but for the derangement of the U.S. natural-history publications, consequent on 
the secession movement. Although the Smithsonian Inst. had offered to present to 
the Brit. Mus. their first series of duplicate specimens from these expeditions, which 
was exhibited at the Manchester Meeting of the Brit. Assoc., where this Report was 

called for, no notice was given to the writer of the valuable results of the british 
survey; and it was only through the private kindness of Drs. Sclater and Baird that 
he was prevented from adding to the list of synonyms, already, alas! so numerous 
and perplexing. 

+ These species are named after places, not after persons, as would be supposed 
by the terminations. 90

G7. Saxidomus brevisiphonatus, n. s. This unique shell is marked, “ Vancouver

The collections made on the British Survey are peculiarly valuable to the 
student in consequence of the great perfection of the specimens. They haye 
generally been obtained alive, and are often the finest known of their kinds. 
The occurrence, however, of a specimen of the tropical Orthalicus zebra, 
marked ‘ Vancouver's Island,” in Mr. Lord’s collection*, is a useful lesson. 
‘When such reliable data are thus found possessed of adventitious materials, 
it will not be regarded as a slight on the collections of the most careful 
naturalists when specimens are regarded as of doubtful geographical accuracy. 
In Dr. Lyall’s collections there also occur specimens of the well-known Patella 
Magellanica and Trophon Magellanicus, duly marked ‘“ Vancouver’s Island,” 
though no doubt collected in the passage round Cape Horn. The naturalists 
of the American Expl. Expeditions generally travelled across the continent.

present object by far the most important, both as relates to the number of 

* Mr. Lord writes, “The fact of my having found this shell, alive, on Vancouver 
Isiand is beyond question. How it got there Ido not pretend to say; it was very pos- 
sibly brought by some ship,”

species authentically collected and the thoroughly competent and accurate 
manner in which the necessary information is being recorded. It is no longer 
left to the great nations bordering on the Atlantic to send exploring expe- 
ditions to the Pacific. The State of California, only born in 1850, has so 
rapidly attained maturity that when she was barely ten years old she con- 
sidered science a necessary part of her political constitution, and organized a 
«State Geological Survey,” under the direction of Prof. Whitney. To this 
survey Dr. J. G. Cooper (whose collections for the Pacific Railway Explora- 
tions have already been reported, wide pp. 597-601) was appointed zoologist, 
and Mr. W. M. Gabb (formerly of Philadelphia) paleontologist. The friendly 
relations established with both these gentlemen at the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion not only put them in possession of the special desiderata on the present 
branch of inquiry, but have resulted in unreserved interchange of facts and 
opinions, by means of which a large instalment of the malacological results 
of the Survey can be embodied in this Report. Dr. Cooper has not only ex- 
plored the whole coast and the neighbouring islands from Monterey to San 
Diego, but has dredged extensively from shoal-water to 120 fathoms, keeping 
accurate lists of all acquisitions from each locality. Having an artist’s 
pencil as well as a naturalist’s eye, he has drawn the animals from life, and 
already subjected many of them to dissection. The war has to some extent 
suspended the operations of the survey; but it is confidently expected that 
the State will do justice to herself by issuing, with suitable illustrations, 
the full results of her officers’ labours. The first public notice of the mol- 
luscs appears in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N.S., Nov. 3rd, 1862, pp. 202-207. 
Here Dr. Cooper, speaking of the new species, writes with a modesty which 
is not always credited to American naturalists by Europeans,—‘‘As they 
may have been collected either by the N.W. Boundary Survey or at Cape 
St. Lucas, it has been considered safest, in order to avoid confusion, to send 
specimens or drawings of them to [the writer], that he may compare 
them with the above collections, and decide whether they are really new.” 
He gives valid reasons, however, for describing the following soft Mollusca. 
Unfortunately for French and German naturalists, the diagnoses are in 
English only. 

2u2. Strategus (n. g.) inermis,n. s. More highly organized than any other genus 

of Opisthobranchiata ; creeps slowly among the grasses in the muddy parts 
of San Diego Bay, looking like a large caterpillar. Not uncommon. 

203. Pleurophyllidia Californica, un. s. Closely resembles P. lineata of S. Europe. 
“From the distance of locality there can, however, be no identity of 
species.” [?] _ Numerous in Dec., crawling and burrowing on sandy flats 
in San Diego Bay; none in Jan., after the floods. [Dr. Cooper writes that 
the body of fresh water was so great in some places as to kill the marine 
molluses for a considerable distance beyond the estuaries, and thus mate- 
rially alter the pre-existent fauna. | 

204. Doris Montereyensis, n. s., 6-10 fm., adhering to sandstone. Monterey Bay, 
very rare. Small specimens in San Francisco Bay, Frick. 

904. Doris (Asteronotus) sanguinea, n. s. Under stones in San Diego Bay ; rare. 

204. Doris (? Asteronotus) alabastrina, n.s. Under stones in 8. Diego Bay. One sp. 

204. Doris (? Actinocyclus) Sandiegensis, n. 8. Very active among grass on mud-~ 
flats near low-water mark, San Diego Bay ; common before the flood. 

205. ABolis (? Flabellina) opalescens, n. 8. Common among grass in San Diego Bay. 

205. ols (? Phidiana) todinea, un. s. Among alge on rocks outside San Diego: 

207. Tritonia Palmeri, n. s. San Diego, common “in same localities as the Di- 
phyllidia. Named after Mr. Edward Palmer, a zealous naturalist, who 
assisted me while at San Diego.” 



Dr. Cooper’s second paper ‘‘ On New or Rare Mollusca inhabiting the Coast 
of California,” in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N.S., Aug. 17, 1863, contains (English) 
descriptions of the following species. He observes that ‘* Santa Barbara and 
Santa Barbara Island are very different in the groups of animals inhabiting 
them, although the island is only thirty-five miles from the mainland. 
Catalina Island is twenty-four miles from the mainland, and the molluscs 
are very different from both the mainland and the other islands, being the 
richest locality on our shores.”’

inches by 5*. Three specimens ; San Pedro beach, after storm ; stomach full 
of alge. . Fig. 14.

Sept. 7th, 1863. Dr. Cooper described a very interesting new genus of 
Pulmonates, only found at the head of one ravine in Santa Barbara Island, 
with “myriads of Helix Kelletini | =H. Tryon, v. note *, p. 116], and two 
other species, probably new.” Full particulars of its habits are given. It 
has the mantle of Zima, dentition of Heliced@, and shell resembling Dauwdle- 
bardia and Homalonyx | = Omalonyx, D'Or». ].

Dr. Palmer sent a valuable consignment cf shells collected by him between 
San Diego and S. Pedro to the Smithsonian Institution. Dr. Cooper obtained 
permission to send the first series of duplicates, duly numbered, for identi- 
fication, to the Smithsonian Institution. This invaluable scries was lost in 
the ‘Golden Gate.’ The gold was recovered, and much of it stolen; the far 
more precious shells remain, unnaturally located, in their native element— 
a puzzle, perhaps, to paleontologists in some coming age. Other series, though 
not so complete, have since been received in safety; and through the libe- 
rality of the Californian Survey and of the Smithsonian Institution, as well as 
through the energy and kinduess of Dr. Cooper, they are already being dis- 
tributed to the Cumingian Collection, the British Museum, the museums at 
Cambridge, Mass., Philadelphia, Albany, Montreal, Xc., as well as to the col- 
lections of working naturalists. The stations being now discovered, it is to be 
hoped that in a few years Californian shells will cease to be objects of great 
rarity in this country. At the request of Dr. Cooper, in order that he might 
proceed with other departments of his labours, all the new species which have 

been seen in England have been described in conjunction with those from 
other sources. On those which are only known here by the beautiful drawings 
sent by the collector, it would be unsafe and premature to impose a name. 
The diagnoses are being published in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N.8., and should be 
accredited to the zealous zoologist of the Survey, rather than to the mere 
artist-in-words who endeavours to represent their forms to the reader. It 
will be understood that the lists now to be presented, though corrected to the 
date of going to press, are still incomplete; and that the information has been 




compiled from Dr. Cooper’s letters received at different times, without oppor- 
tunity for his revision. Should errors, however, have escaped detection, they 
will, no doubt, be corrected, and omissions supplied, in the forthcoming Re- 
ports of the Survey. The species either new to science, or now first found in 
the Californian branch of the fauna, are as follows :—

Catalina Is. 

Clidiophora punctata. 8S. Diego to Sta. Cruz; valves common, but rare living.

attends their identification. Dr. Cooper found very large valves (resembling 
Schizotherus) in abundance, but much deformed by the entrance of sand, and 
apparently killed by the fresh waters of the great flood. The large shells 
belong to two very distinct species, which are probably those of Conrad ; 
among the small shells is perhaps a third, which may be Dr. Gould’s sup- 
pressed nasuta. 

Raéta undulata. This remarkable reverse of the Atlantic R. canaliculata is 
also confirmed by rare valves from the 8. Diegan district. It is not con- 
generic with Harvella elegans, to which it bears but a slight external resem- 

. Lapes tenerrima, Large dead valves of this very distinct species were found 

with the Standelle, and confirm Col. Jewett’s young shells described as from

The information on station, &c., which Dr. Cooper has sent with regard to 
previously known species, will be found incorporated in the general table of 
the fauna. The following notes, extracted from his letters, are too valuable 
to be omitted :— 

Haliotis Cahforniensis, “This form is so rare that I think it only a var. of 

Hlaliotis, Several specimens from the Farallones present characters inter- 
mediate between corrugata, rufescens, and Kamtschatkana. It is not yet 
ascertained whether they ave hybrids or a distinct species. 

“ Livona picoides I have not found, though I have seen fresh ones from Pt. 

?Serpulorbis squamigerus. Common south of Pt. Conception; has no 
operculum.” [The young begins like V. anellwm, Morch. | 

Macron lividus. Point Loma, 8. Pedro, common; extends northwards to the 
Farallones. [= Planazis nigritella, Newcomb, MS.; non auct. } 

“ Olivella semistriata, Gray, fide Newe., is a species found N. of Monterey only.” 
[As Dr. Gray’s species is from Panama, that of Neweomb is probably 
O. beetica. | 

“ Nassa interstriata, Conr., foss. (P= N. paupera, Gld.) ; resembles N. fossata, 
Gld. (= B. elegans, Rve.*), but distinct. Common south from Sta. Barbara.” 
[Probably =N. perpinguis, Hds. N. paupera is quite distinct,= N. striaca, 
C. B. Ad., teste Cuming. ] 

“ Fissurella violacea I have seen from Catalina Is.’ [Esch.’s shell is generally 
considered S. American. ? May Dr. Cooper's be a form of volcano. 

Acmee.* With regard to limpets and other variable shells, Dr. C. writes:— 
“From my examination of large numbers of specimens, I am more and 
more compelled to believe that hybrids are very frequent between allied

species, and that the comparatively few links that are met-with in large 
series of two forms should not be allowed to unite them, but be considered 
as hybrids.” 

Lnnatia Lewisti. Abundant on beach. [One sp. measures 53 in., and the 
animal of a much smaller one (4 in.) is Ll inches long. | 

Ostrea. “The same species throughout to S. Franc.: 8. “Diego,” Cooper. [Be- 
sides the typical northern shell, 0. lur ada, are well- marked Pvars. laticauduta, 
rufoides, and expansa. | 

There are also several species which are quoted in Dr. Cooper’s letters, or 
appear from his sketches to be quite distinct, or at least new to the fauna ; 
but they have not yet been sent for identification. Among these the following 
are the most important. The MS. numbers refer to the tracings which Dr. 
Cooper kindly copied from his original drawings. Where a “—” appears, 
the information is derived from his letters only.

In Prof. Whitney’s Preliminary Report on the Survey, Proce. Cal. Ac. p. 27, 
May 4th, 1863, he states approximately as the result of Dr. Cooper’s mala- 
cological labours, up to the close of 1862 :— 

No. of species in the collection ............se00.- mis cyocetae csaenoe 

Of which are new to California, and believed to be undescribed .... 125 
Other supposed Californian species not yet collectedss fascceiie. CaO 

In a Survey conducted with such care, even negative evidence is of some 
importance, though not conclusive. Dr. Cooper has not been able to obtain 
the following species :— 

Discina Evansiv. 

Strigilla carnaria. {My. Nuttall’s specimens were probably Atlantic. ] 

Venus dispar. 

Trapesium Californicum. [= Duperryi,= Guiniacum. | 

Lucina bella, | Perhaps =pectinuta, Cpr. ; but the type seems lost. ] 

Modiola nitens. {Probably an error in the Cumingian label. | 

Mytilus glomeratus, “= edulis, vay.” {Perhaps an accidental var. from being 
crowded on a floating stick. | 

Barbatia pernoides. {Very probably an error in Dr. Gould’s label. ] 

Arca multicostata. ‘“ Must have been brought to 8. Diego.” 

Pecten purpuratus. [Ascribed to the fauna from abundant valves marked 
“Cal.” in the U.S. E. E. collections, but certainly from 8. America. Dr. 
Cooper has unfortunately not been able to discover any of the species 
described by Has. | 

Radius variabilis. ‘“ Doubtless exotic.” 

Polinices perspicua. ‘ Probably Mexican.” 

Ranella triquetra. “ Probably Mexican.” [Guaymas. ] 

105. Having now’presented to the student an analysis of all that is yet 
known of the results of public surveys, it remains that we tabulate what has 
been accomplished by private enterprise. Mr. J. Xantus, a Hungarian gen- 
tleman in the employ of the United States Coast Survey under the able 
direction of Professor Bache, was stationed for eighteen months, ending July 
1861, at Cape St. Lucas, the southern point of the peninsula of California. 
It is a source of great benefit to natural science that the Secretary of the 
Sinithsonian Institution is also one of the acting members of the Coast Survey 
Board; and that a harmony of operations has always existed between the 
directors of these two scientific agencies in Washington. The publications 
of the Coast Survey have earned for themselves a reputation not surpassed by 
those of the oldest and wealthiest maritime nations. For obtaining data on 
geographical distribution, Cape St. Lucas was a peculiarly valuable station, 
being situated near the supposed meeting-point of the two faunas (Vv. B.A. 



Rep.p.350); and also, not being a place of trade, or even an inhabited district, 
likely to be free from human importations, although we should be prepared 
to find dead exotics thrown on its shores both by northern and by tropical 
currents. In his solitary and what would otherwise have been monotonous 
lite, Mr. Xantus found full employment in assiduously collecting specimens 
in all available departments of natural history ; having received ample in- 
structions, and the needful apparatus, from the Smithsonian Institution, 
The bulk of the shells at first received from him were worn beach npeci-= 
mens; but afterwards several species were preserved, with the animals, in 
alcohol. Mr. Xantus generously presented the first series of the molluscs to the 
Smithsonian Museum, reserving the second for his native land. The first 
available duplicates of the shells not occurring in thé Reigen collection will 
be found in the British Museum or in the Cumingian cabinets*. Although the 
whole series would have found little favour in the eyes of a London dealer or 
a drawing-room collector, it proved a very interesting commentary on the 
Reigen and Adams Catalogues: it added about sixty mew forms to the accu- 
rately located species of the marine fauna, besides confirming many others, 
which rested previously on doubtful evidence ; and disproved the intermixture 
of northern species, which, from the map alone, had before been considered 

The collection is not only essentially tropical, but contains a larger propor- 
tion of Central American and Panama species than are found in the Reigen 
Catalogue. This may partly be due to the accidents of station, and partly to 
this projecting southern peninsula striking the equatorial currents. It must 
also be remembered that the Reigen Catalogue embraces only the Liverpool 
division of his collection ; and that many more species may have existed in 
that portion of the Havre series which did not find its way to the London 
markets. Mr. Xantus also obtained individuals of identical species from 
Margarita Island, and a series containing living specimens of Purpura plano- 
spira (only thrown up dead on the promontory), from Socorro Island, one of 
the Revilla-gigedo group. <A very few specimens of Haliotis and of Pacific 
shells may have been given to him by sailors or residents: they were not 
distinguished from his own series in opening the packages. The collection is 
not yet complete. In consequence of the French occupation of Mexico, it 
was with difficulty that Mr. Xantus himself ‘ran the blockade” at Manza- 
nello; and he was compelled to leave there thirty-one boxes of shells, alco- 
holies, &c., subject to the risks of war. 

The Polyzoa were placed in the hands of Mr. G. Busk for examination, 
and the alcoholics were intrusted to Dr. Alcock, the Curator of the Manches- 
ter Natural History Society. Neither of these gentlemen have as yet been 

* During the period that Mr. Xantus was out of employment, owing to the derange- 
ments of the war, a portion of the duplicates were offered for sale, and “will be found ~ in 
some of the principal collections.

in the first column are those in Prof. C. B. Adams’s Panama Catalogue: a 
P in the same column signifies that the species has been found at Panama 
by other collectors. The second column contains the shells of La Paz, col- 
lected by Major Rich and others, and are marked by an italic P. In the 
third column, A shows that the shell has been found at Acapulco, on good 
authority ; and C, that it is known at other stations on the Central American 
coast. The fourth column exhibits the corresponding numbers of the species 
in the B. M. Reigen Catalogue; and G shows that the shell has been found 
in the Gulf district by other collectors. In the fifth column, Cal. stands 
for Upper, and L for Lower California; Marg. for Margarita Bay, Gal. for 
the Galapagos, E for Ecuador and the tropical shores of S. America, and WI 
for the West Indies. The sixth column continues the numbering of the

* A difficulty attends the identification of young specimens of these rare species, no 
series having yet been obtained. “ C. excavata, var.,” in Mus. Cum, is exactly interme- 
diate between the two. The young of excavata has a large swelling umbo projecting beyond 
the margin ; the umbo in “? var.” has the margin spreading round it, as in ony, jnn., 
and in consequence appears turned in the contrary direction. The umbilicus above the 
deck exists in both forms; but if is not an absolutely constant character, even in adunca,

As would be expected, the bulk of these species (203 out of 367) are the 
same as have been already enumerated in the Reigen Catalogue. Of those 
which do not appear in the Mazatlan lists, no fewer than 37 appear in the 
Panama collections (beside 10 others, known to inhabit the equatorial region). 
Of those not quoted from Mazatlan, 34 are also found in the Acapulco 
region, and 30 at La Paz. Of the whole number, 79 have also been found 
in South America, and 28 in the Galapagos. 38 have also been found in 
Margarita Bay, of which Pyrazus incisus and Siphonaria equilirata are Lower 
Californian rather than Gulf species; but only 13 belong to that portion of 
the Lower Californian fauna which is known to reach 8. Diego, exclusive of 
the same number of Gulf species, which also stray into the 8. Diegan district. 
There are also 10 species, which (with more or less distinctness) represent 
West Indian forms. Of these, five, viz. Heterodonax bimaculatus, Evato 
Mauyerie, Volvarina varia, Persicula imbricata and phrugia, are néw to the 
Gulf fauna: the other five appear in the Reigen Catalogue. 

106. The most extensive collections in the Vancouver district, both as far 
as the number of species and of specimens is concerned, have been made for 
the Smithsonian Institution by Mr. J. G. Swan, teacher at the Indian Reserve, 
Neeah Bay, W. T. For several years * valuable consignments have been 
received from him of shells collected at Cape Flattery, Port Townsend, and 
other stations. Latterly he has trained the native children to pick up shore- 
shells in large quantities. The labour of sorting and arranging these has 
been enormous; it has, however, been repaid not only by observing the 

* In consequence of boxes having been received at different times, through the accidents 
of transit, it has not always been possible to ascertain with certainty to whom, among 
simultaneous collectors, should be allowed priority in the discovery of new species. 



variations of form in large numbers of individuals, but by the discovery of 
several new species and the addition to the district-fauna of many others. 
The duplicates are made-up in series for distribution by the Smithsoman 
Institution ; and, though of the worst quality from a “ collector’s”’ point of 
view, they will be found very serviceable by real students, being carefully 
named in accordance with this Report. He has now received a dredge, con- 
structed for him by Dr. Stimpson; and if he succeeds in training the young 
Indians to use it, there is little doubt that a rich harvest of fresh materials 
will shortly be obtained. Some of the collections were made on the neigh- 
bouring shores of Vancouver’s Island, among which was a large series of 
Puchypoma gibberosum, Chem., with attached Bivoxia, noth of an essentially 
Eastern Pacific type, the former having been brought from Japan by Mr. A. 
Adams. The Indians have taken a fancy to the opercula of this shell for the 
purpose of ornamenting their canoes. As it is an article of trade among 
themselves, it is remarkable that so large ashell should have so long escaped 
the notice of collectors. Dead specimens have been washed-up in California ; 
but it is not known even to enter the Straits of De Fuca alive. The shore- 
pickings of the Indian children, which have already added 25 species to 
science, are singularly free from ballast-importations, although they present 
a few (supposed) extra-limital shells, probably washed-up by the ocean 
currents. The following are the species new to the Vancouver fauna ; the 
remainder will be found tabulated in the 7th column of the general Table, 
par. 112, ifra. 

Waldheinia Coreanica, valves.

107. A collection of shells received from the Farallones Islands by Mr. R. 
D. Darbishire, of Manchester, soon after the publication of the first Report, 
contained several species at that time new to science, but in too imperfect a 
condition for description. Among them were— 

Martesia intercalata, Maz. Cat., no. 19. Burrowing in Haliotis rufescens. 
Odostomia inflata, n. 8. Young shells, abundant, in Haliotis rufescens. 
Ocinebra lurida. 

Ocinebra interfossa, 0. 8. 

Collections from the same locality were afterwards sent by the Rev. J. 
Rowell, and are tabulated with the rest of the Smithsonian series in the 4th 
column of the general Table, par. 112. 



108. In 1860, previously to the ecmmencement of the Californian Geo- 
logical Survey, Dr. J. G. Cooper joined a military expedition across the Rocky 
Mountains, under the command of Major Blake, U.S.A. Having forwarded 
his notes and specimens to Judge Cooper, they were placed in the hands of 
Mr. Thomas Bland, of New York. He prepared a “ Notice of Land and 
Freshwater Shells, collected by Dr. J. G. Cooper in the Rocky Mountains, &c.,” 
which appears in the ‘Ann. Lyc. N. H. of N. York,’ 1861, pp. 362 et seq. 
We have here the judgment of one of the most distinguished students of 
American land-shells, whose labours on the tropical forms have accumulated 
facts so important in their bearing on the Darwinian controversy *. The fol- 
lowing is an outline of the Report, which is peculiarly valuable for the copious 
notes on the station and distribution of species :— 


1. Helix Townsendiana, Lea. “ Both slopes of the Bitter Root Mountains, from 
2200-5600 tt. high. Large var. at the base of the range to 4800 ft. Smail 
var. in dry prairie at junction of Hell-Gate and Bitter Root Rivers; also in 
Wash. Ter., west of the Coast Mountains. The most wide-spread of the 
species,” J. G. C.; Puget Sound, Cape Disappointment, teste Bland. 

2. Helix Mullani, n.s., Bland. ‘ Under logs and in dry pine-woods: dead, Coeur 
d’Aléne Mission: living, west side of Bitter Root Mountains,’ J. G. C.; 
St. Joseph’s River, 1st Camp, Oregon, teste Binney. Closely allied to H. Co- 
lumbiana, Lea,=labiosa, Gld. A beautiful hyaline var. was found under a 

_ stone, by the Bitter Root River, 4000 ft. high. 

8. Helix polygyrella, n.s., Bland. “ Moss and dead wood in dampest parts of 
spruce-forests ; common on the Coeur d’Alene Mountains, especially eastern 
slope,’ J. G. C. Entirely unlike any other N. A. species, and having affi- 
nity with H. polygyrata from Brazil. 

4. Helix Vancouverensis, Lea,= H. concava, Bin. sen. olim, non postea, nec Say ; 
=H. vellicata, Fbs., certainly ; =H. sportella, Gld., probably. ‘‘ West sice 
of Coeur d’Aléne Mountains, W. T., in forests of Conifer, such as it in- 
habits west of the Cascade Range. Between these two ranges, for 200 milcs, 
is a wide plain, quite uninhabitable for snails, on account of drought. Th's 
sp. and H. Townsendiana probably travel round it through the northein 
forests in lat. 49°,” J. GC. Also Crescent City, Cal., Newcomb; Oregon

containing veins of lime, 4000 ft. high, near Bitter Root River, Rocky Moun- 
tains,” J. G. C.; Big Horn Mountains, Nebraska; Rio Piedra, W. New 
Mexico; teste Bland. One sp. reached N. York alive, and deposited six 
young shells. [?May not these have been abnormally hatched in the body 
of the parent, from the unnatural confinement. | 

6. Helix Cooperi, Binn., jun. “ East side of Mullan’s Pass, Rocky Mountains, 
W. T., at an elevation of 5500 ft.,” J. G. C.; Black Hills of Nebraska, Dr.

The freshwater shells collected on the Rocky Mountains by Dr. Cooper 
were determined, with the assistance of Dr. Lea and of Messrs. Binney and 
Prime, as follows :— 

ll. Limnea fragilis [as of] Linn. [Binney]. Hell-Gate River; Missouri River, 
above the Falls. [=Z. palustris, auct. | 

12. Limnea humilis, Say. Hell-Gate River. 

13. Limnea bulimoides, Lim. [Binney]. Missouri River, above the Falls. 

14. Limnea desidiosa, Say. Missouri River, above the Falls. 

15. Physa hypnorum, Linn. Hell-Gate River. 

16. Physa heterostropha, Say. Hell-Gate River; Missouri River, above the Falls, 

17. Planorbis trivolvis, Say. Hell-Gate River. 

18. Planorbis Pparvus, Say. Hell-Gate River. 

19. Anceylus, sp. ind.

25. Margaritana margaritifera, Linn. Missouri River, above the Falls; also Spokan 
River, below Lake Coeur d’Aléne,= A. faleatus, Gld.; the purple var. hitherto 
only found on the Pacific slope. 

109. The land-shells of the peninsula of California present points of great 
interest to the student of geographical distribution. While those of the 
eastern shore of the Gulf belong exclusively to the Mexican or Central Ame- 
rican fauna, those of the western present in their general features that form 
of the South American type which belongs to the region of the Andes. The 
contrast between the Glandine and painted Bulimids of Mazatlan, and the 
small dull forms, or solid white shells of the peninsula, is evident even to the 
superficial observer. They are catalogued by Mr. Binney in the ‘ Proe. Ac. 
Nat. Se. Philadelphia,’ 1861, pp. 331-338, and are as follows, outline-figures 

being given of the new species :— 


1. Helix areolata, Shy. CerrosIs., Dr. Veatch. 

2. Helix Pandore, Fbs. Margarita Is. (Binney).

110. At the time of the preparation of the first Report, not a single 
naturalist was known in Europe to be resident on the western slope of North 
Amcrica, to whom communications could be addressed on the subject of it. 
There was, however, even at that time, a ‘“ Californian Academy of Natural 
Sciences,” which met at S. Francisco, and published its ‘ Proceedings.’ This 
Academy is now in a flourishing condition, under the presidency of Col. L. 
Ransom. The general zoological department is under the care of Dr. J. G. 
Cooper; the shells under that of Dr. J.B. Trask, Vice-President of the Academy, 
whose name has already appeared in Judge Cooper’s Report, anted, p. 597 ; 
and the fossils under that of Mr. W.M.Gabb. The corresponding secretary 
is Dr. W. O. Ayres; and the librarian Prof. J. D. Whitney, the director of 
the State Geological Survey. Already the nucleus has been formed of a very 
valuable collection, many of the critical species in which have been sent to 
England for identification. The coasting-trade between S. Francisco and 
many stations in L. California, the Gulf, and the Mexican coast, offers pecu- 
liar facilities for obtaining valuable information. Two of the contributors to 
the Californian Academy require special and grateful mention. Dr. Wesley 
Newcomb (whose labours had greatly enriched the State Collection at his 
native city, Albany, New York, and whose researches among the Achatinelle 
in the Sandwich Islands are well known) is stationed at Oakland, near Fran- 
cisco, and has already furnished valuable papers, an abstract of which is here 
given, as well as emendations and additions to the British Association Report, 
which are included in their appropriate places*. The Rev. J. Rowell has long 
been a regular correspondent of the Smithsonian Institution, and has sub- 
mitted the whole of his West-coast collections for analysis. He has dis- 
played peculiar industry in searching for small species on the hacks of the 
larger shells, especially the Haliotids of the Californian coast, and the Ostvea 
iridescens, Which is imported in large quantities from Acapulco for the San 
Francisco market f. 

In the ‘ Proce. California Ac. Nat. Sc.,’ vol. i. pp. 28-30, Feb. 1855, Dr. 
J. B. Trask published descriptions of Anodonta Randalli, Trask, Upper San 
Joaquin ; Anodonta triangularis, Trask, Sacramento River; Anodonta rotund- 
ovata, Trask, Sacramento Valley ; Alasmodonta Yubaénsis, Trask, Yuba River. 

In the ‘ Ann. Lye. N. H. New York,’ vol. vi. 1860, p. 146, Dr. Newcomb 
describes the first Pupa found on the Pacific slope, viz. Pupa Rowellii, Newe. 
Near Oakland, Cal. ‘* Approaches nearest to P. ovata, Say.” 

* The “ Chiton amiculatus,’ Newe., MS.,= Cryptochiton Stellert. ‘ Rare near S. Fran- 
cisco ; somewhat more abundant in the Bay of Monterey.’”’ His “‘ Panopea generosa,” in 
the Albany Museum, was found to be Schizotherus Nuttalliz. 

+ As an instance of the way in which mistakes arise, may be placed on record a series 
of shells sent to Mr. Rousseau, of Troy, New York, by Mr. Hilman, formerly of that 
city, now a resident at San Francisco. They were sent as Californian ; yet, of the thirty- 
four species which it contained, only one could be called a native of that province. All 
the rest were tropical. and of that peculiar character which belongs to Acapulco. No 
doubt, the gentleman had obtained them from a trader to that city. If only a few species 
had been sent, mixed with Californian shells, they might have puzzled the learned ; for they 
were obtained, on the spot. by a gentleman of known integrity. As itwas, the magnitude of 
the error led to its discovery: but in how many similar cases such error is thought impos- 
sible !—Strigilla carnaria; Donax carinatus, puncto-striatus; Heterod. bimaculatus; Cal- 
lista aurantia, chionea; Petr. robusta; Card. consors, biangulatum; Liocard. apicinum ; 
Trigona radiata, Hindsii; Anom. subimbricata ; Lima tetrica; Siphonaria gigas, lecanium ; 
Patella discors, pediculus; Fiss, rugosa; Crue. imbricatum, spinosum, umbrella; Crep.

maroccana, catenata; Polinices uber; Leuc. cingulata; AEneta harpa; Purp. triangularis, 
The single shell from the temperate fauna is Glyphis aspera, 


632 REPORT—1863. 
In the ‘ Ann. Lyc. N. H. New York,’ 1861, p. 287, the Rev. J. Rowell, of 

San Francisco, describes the second species of Pupa* discovered on the 
western slope, viz. “ P. Californica, Row., San Francisco: plentiful.” 

On February 4th, 1861, Dr. Wesley Newcomb published (Latin) dia- 
gnoses of the following Californian Pulmonates in the « Proceedings of the 
Cal. Ac. Nat. Sc.,’ vol. 1. pp. 91-94. A second Part bears date March 18th, 
pp. 103, 104.

In the ‘Proc. Ac. Nat. Sc. Philadelphia, 1861,’ pp. 367-372, Mr. W. M., 
Gabb published “ Descriptions of New Species of American Tertiary Fossils,” 
in which occur several Californian shells. The authorities for the localities 
are not given, and the diagnoses are in English only. Considerable confusion 
often arises from the study of tertiary fossils without knowledge of recent 
shells, and vice verséd. Mr. Gabb’s writings on the Cretaceous fossils of Ame- 
rica display an ability with which this paper is perhaps not commensurate. 
Some errors which had been found very difficult to understand are here cor- 
rected by the author himself, who regrets the incompleteness of his earlier

In the ‘ Proceedings of the Calif. Ac. Nat. Sc.’ for April 7th, 1862, pp. 170- 
172, Mr. W. M. Gabb published detailed English “ Descriptions of two Species 
of Cephalopoda in the Museum of the Academy,” of which one, Onychoteuthis 
jusiformis, is said to be from Cape Horn, the other from California.

scarcely be distinguished, even specifically, from some living forms.

From the ‘ Proc. Cal. Ac. N.8.,’ 1863, p. 11, it appears that at least one 
molluse, a Teredo or Xylotrya, has already established for itself an economic 
celebrity. Piles have been entirely destroyed in six months from the time 
they were placed in the water. 

On March 2, 1863, Mr. Auguste Remond published, in the same Journal, 
English ‘‘ Descriptions of two new Species of Bivalves from the Tertiaries of 
Contra Costa County: ”— 

13. Cardium Gabbiit, Rem. Late tert. deposit near Kirker’s Pass, in shelly sand,

On April 20, 1863, Dr. Cooper described (in English) the following mol- 
luse, of which the only species previously known is from Cuba :— 


21. Gundlachia Calfornica, Rowell. Fig. 5 (three views). Fifty specimens on 
water-plants in clear, stagnant ponds, at Marysville, Feather River, 2ovweil. 

On January 8, 1864, Dr. Newcomb described (in Latin) the following, 
with other Pulmonates from the State Survey, already tabulated in p. 609 :— 

115. Helix Hillebrandi, Newe. Tuolumne Co., Cal. One recent and several fossi 
shells, M. Voy. Like H. Thouarsii, but depressed and hirsute. 

The latest contribution to the malacology of California is one of the most 
interesting. It is described (in Latin) by Dr. Newcomb, Feb. 1, 1864 :-— 

121. Pedicularia Californica, Newe. One specimen from coral growing on a mon- 
ster Echidnocerus, very deep water, Farallones Is., D. N. Robinson. “ As 
beautiful as P. elegantissima, Desh., from Is. Bourbon.’’ [ Mr. Pease also ob- 
tained a deep-water Pedicularia from coral in the Pacific Is., which Mr. 
Cuming affiliated to the Mediterranean P. Sicula. Dy. Gould (Otia, p. 215) 
also describes P. decussata, coast of Georgia, 400 fm., U. S. Coast Survey. | 

111. The following descriptions of species, and notes on habitats and 
synonymy, have been collated from various American scientific periodicals, 
chiefly by the assistance of Mr. Binney’s ‘ Bibliography.’ 

In the ‘American Journal of Science and Art,’ O.S., vol. xxxviii. p. 396, 
Apmil 1840, Dr. A. A. Gould records the following species, said to be from 
“California.” His 7'rochus vittatus is not known :— 

Murex tricolor et bicolor. Trochus vittatus. 
Cardium Californianum. Bulimus undatus. 

In the ‘Annals of the New York Lyceum of Natural History,’ vol. iv. 
1846, No. 5, p. 165, Mr. John H. Redfield first described Triton Oregonense, 
Straits of San Juan de Fuca: plate 11. fig. 2. 

In the ‘ Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia,’ 
1848, vol. iv. p. 121, Mr. T. A. Conrad described new genera, and gave notes or 
Parapholas Californica, Cryptomya Californica, and Psammobia Californica, 
altering Osteodesma hyalina (nom. preoc.) into Lyonsia Floridana. In the 
same work, March 1854, vol. vii., Mr. Conrad described Cyathodonta undulata, 
He also states that Gnathodon trigonum. Petit, is probably identical with G, 
Lecontei, Conr.[?| (nom. prior), and alters genus T'rigonella to Pachydesma.

Penitella Conradi, Val., = Pholas penita, Conr., = Pholas concamerata, Desh. 
Penitella melanura, Sby., = Penitella Wilsoni, Cony. (not Parapholus bisulcaia), 

In the elaborate but somewhat intricate ‘‘ Monograph of the Order Phola- 
dacea,” &e., by G..W. Tryon, jun., Philadelphia, 1862, the following species 
are quoted from the West Coast, and form the conclusion of the marine shells 
hitherto described, so far as known to the writer :—

Gray to misunderstand both the species and Conrad’s idea of the genus 
Penitella.” { Vide Brit. Assoc. Rep. 1856, p. 265. ] 
87. Penitella penita. [Mr Tryon erroneously quotes (Netastoma) Darwinii, as 
well as Ph. cornea, as synonyms. |

112. The following Table contains a complete list of all the Molluses which 
have been identified, from Vancouver Island to 8. Diego, arranged so as to 
show at the same time their habitat, and the principal collectors who have 
obtained them. The species in the first column were obtained by Prof. 
Nuttall; in the second, by Col. Jewett. The third column (marked B A.) 
contains the species tabulated from other sources in the First Report. Those 
to the right of the double column are the fresh explorations recorded in this 
Supplementary Report. The fourth column contains the shells brought by 
the Pacific Railroad Expeditions, as well as the species sent to the officers of 
the Smithsonian Institution by the Rev. J. Rowell and their various corre- 
spondents. The fifth column (‘ Ken.’) contains the species of the American, 
and the sixth (‘ Lord’) of the British Nort Pacifie Boundary Survey. The 
seventh records the collections of Mr. Swan and his Indian children; the 
last, those of Dr. Cooper in the Californian Geological Survey. As a large 
proportion of the species are as yet unknown, and the diagnoses will be found 
scattered in various periodicals, some of which are rarely accessible in this 
country, it has been judged needful to add a few words of description, with 
references to well-known books. By this means the student will have before 
him a compact handbook of the fauna, and will distinguish at a glance the 
range of localities, and the amount of authority for each. For the full 
synonymy, the previous pages of the two Reports must be consulted.

113. It remains to tabulate the shells which have been received from 
special localities, south of the State of California, either by the writer or by 
the Smithsonian Institution; vide Br. Assoc. Rep., par. 77. 

The promontory of Lower California has been so little explored, that the » 
existence of a large inland fiord, in lat. 28°, was not known to the autho- 
rities. It appears that the whales have long delighted in its quiet waters; 
and those whalers who were in the secret carefully preserved the exclusive 
knowledge of so profitable a hunting-ground. All that we know at present 
of the molluscs of that region is from collections made at Cerros Island, by 
Dr. Ayres and Dr. Veitsch. They are mostly shore shells, and are sadly 
intermixed with an abundance of cowries, cones, strombs, and other clearly 
Pacific species, which throw great doubt upon those which may be truly 
from the coast. As it is manifestly a ‘hotbed of spurious species,” nothing 
can safely be built upon the data, which present a singular intermixture of 
northern and southern forms. Excluding the Central Pacific importations,

Callopoma tessellatum = Fokkesii, 

The shells of Margarita Bay, on the Pacific coast of Lower California, in 
lat. 24°, have become known through W. Harper Pease, Esq., of Honolulu, 
Sandwich Islands. Through his labours we are likely soon to be favoured 
with accurate accounts of the distribution of species in the various parts of 
the Pacific Ocean. Already his researches have greatly enriched our know- 
ledge of the quaint fauna of the Sandwich Islands, from which he has elimi- 
nated the spurious species, and added those erroneously ascribed to California 
by previous naturalists. The principal trade from these islands is with San 
Francisco; and “the coast,” in Mr. Pease’s writings, signifies the coast of — 
California or (generally) of Western America. Many of our best specimens 
of rare West-coast shells have been received from him, and in remarkably 
fresh preservation. The Margarita Bay species were obtained by one of his 
trained collectors, and are as follows :—

lated in Major Rich’s list, p. 541, in the C.S. L. list, p. 619, and the B. A.

It is clear that the fauna of the district is essentially tropical, 

and remarkably free from Californian species.

A very interesting series of shells were collected at Guaymas and Pinacati 
Bay, by Capt. Stone and Mr. Sloat. The latter gentleman affixed MS. names 
to those which he regarded as new. They were in remarkably beautiful 
condition, the bivalves having an unusually porcellanous aspect, and many 
uf the species presenting local peculiarities.

To the Guaymas fauna must be added, from Dr. Gould’s portion of the 
same collection, ‘‘ Pecten pyaidatus” [?=subcrenatus, jun.). Also from the 
collection of the Calif. Ac. Nat. Se., Nassa nodocincta, A. Ad. { Galapagos, 
Cuming}. On comparing these lists with the shells given in Bb. A. Rep. 
p- 352 (in which the Venus quoted is not “ staminea, Conr.,” but a southern 
species), it will be seen that the fauna of the upper part of the Gulf, as far 
north as it has been explored, is essentially tropical, The Chione fluctifray

and C. succincta, however, and the Polinices Recluziana indieate a connexien 
with California which may have been, at a previous age, more direct than at 

114. (See first Report, pars. 79-83.) Acapulco being notorious for the 
exotic species quoted in its fauna, it is desirable to examine all authentic 
collections from that prolific locality. The Smithsonian series were ob- 
tained by Dr. Newberry * (1V.), after his Pacific R. R. Explorations (vide 
p- 993); by Mr. Belcher (B.); and by the Rev. J. Rowell (2#.), who obtained 
them principally from the valves of the large oysters. The private collec- 
tions of Judge Cooper, Col. Jewett (J.), and ‘other American naturalists have 
also afforded valuable information. The species from these various sources, 
which were also found by Mr. Xantus, are tabulated with his Cape St. Lucas

The following species are part of a collection received at the Smithsonian

115. The Pulmonates of the Pacific slope hive not formed a special study 
with the writer of this Report, as they were already in the abler hands of 
-Messrs. Binney, Bland, and other eminent Transatlantic naturalists. The 
opinions of Mr. Binney as to synonymy, &c., with descriptions of new 
species and details of those previously known, were given in papers pub- 
lished in the ‘ Proce. Ac. Nat. Sc. Phil.’ as follows:—* Descriptions of American 
Land Shells,’’ Feb. 1857; ‘‘ Notes on American Land Shells,” Oct. 1857, 
May 1858, Nov. 1858, July 1859: and also in the ‘ Proc. Bost. N. H.5.,’ 
* Description of two supposed new species of American Land Shells,” Apr. 
1857. These are embodied in ‘ The Terrestrial Air-Breathing Molluscs of the 
United States and the adjacent Territories of North America,’ vol. iv., by 
W. G. Binney, Boston, 1859. It was first printed in the ‘ Boston Journal 
of Natural History,’ yall vil., and is intended as a Supplement to the great 
treatise by his father, vols. 1.-11., on the same subject. It is impossible to 
speak in too high terms of commendation of the manner in which this work 
has been prepared and executed, and of the beautiful figures drawn by Otto 
| Kohler. The more matured views of the author were embodied in the 
‘ Check-List of the Terrestrial Gasteropoda of North America,’ published by 
the Smithsonian Inst., June 1860, of which a second edition was soon issuea, 
The species were divided into three series,—(1) those of the Pacific coast, 


670 RrPoRT—18653. 

trom the extreme north to Mazatlan ; (2) those of eastern N. A.. from the 
boreal regions to the Rio Grande ; (3) those found in Mexico, to which sixteen 
from the first series are added. The freshwater Pulmonates are catalogued 
by the same most industrious author, in the ‘ Check-List of the Fluviatile 
Gasteropoda of N. America,’ which contains the Melaniade, Paludinidy, 
Ampullariade, Valvutide, and Limneide ; the West Coast species being dis- 
tinguished by the letter W, and the Mexican by M. Mr. Binney next under- 
took a monograph of the Paludinide, &c., the proofs of which were widely 
distributed in 1862. Afterwards, assisted by the extensive series of speci- 
mens received from the Smithsonian Museum, and with access to those of 
the principal public and private collections in the U.8., and with the benefit 
of Say’s types preserved in the Acad. Nat. Sc. Phil., he prepared a preliminary 
synopsis of the Limneide, with full synonymy, proofs of which were issued by 
the Smithsonian Inst., May 4th, 1863. Last of all, under date Dec. 9, 1868, 
the Smithsonian Inst. has distributed proof copies of a complete ‘Synopsis 
of the Species of Air-Breathing Molluscs of N. A., as eliminated from their 
synonyms by Mr. Binney’*. Of all these works the author not only sent the 
earliest slip-proofs to assist in the preparation of this Report, but in several 
instances took the pains to write separately what related to the W. coast, 
and even sent the manifold-duplicate of part of the printer’s copy. It is not 
considered necessary to tabulate each of these publications separately, as 
they can easily be obtained by post, on application to Professor Henry, 
Washington, D.C. The following list embodies—(1) the classification and 
nomenclature of Dec. 9th, 1863; (2) the synonymy as given in previous 
synopses ; and (3) the localities and authorities supplied by Mr. Binney in 
MS. The following reservation requires attention :—‘‘ As a mere proof, 
which will undoubiedly receive many corrections, this list should not be 
quoted as authority, or referred-to as a published work.”

* The first Transatlantic attempt to revise the genera of N. A. Helicid@ was made by 
Mr. Bland, in his “ Remarks on Classifications of N. A. Helices by European authors, 
and especially H. and A. Adams and Albers,” printed in the ‘ Annals of the Lyceum ot 
Nat. Hist. N. York,’ Oct. 1863. In an addendum, he gives a list of the Pacific species, 
with an account of two “genera” not represented in the eastern division. Mr. Binney, 
continuing Mr. Bland’s labours, issues the species for the most part in the trmomial 
nomenclature, which now appears to be taking the place of the Linnean binomial system. 
No attempt is here made to review the work, as the writer felt justified in doing with 
reference to marine shells; the only alterations made consisting of corrections in some of 
the citations with which he happened to be aa familiar.

{ Non Bulinus, Sby., olim,= Bulimus, auct. However clearly Bulinus, Binn., may be 
right according to the antiquaries, it is far too like Bulimus, which has taken complete 
possession of the entire malacological world, to be allowed a resurrection in the same 
order. Surely burial for a given number of years ought to be allowed as evidence of 
death, especially if the infant-name scarcely even breathed the air of use, and its resur- 
rection would breed malaria among terms thriving in the vigorous manhood of universal 
acceptance. ; 

§ It is quite possible that this may prove avery finely grown specimen of P. lentus. Dr. 
Kennerley’s shells are intermediate.

logue of the species of Amnicola, Vivipara, Bithynia, Valvata, and Ampul- 
laria,” by Mr. W. G. Binney. It is abundantly illustrated with outline- 
woodcuts, and contains the synonymy corrected from all the accessible types. 
Dr. Stimpson is at present engaged in dissecting the molluscs; but none of 
his investigations have yet been published. The following is a résumé of the 
West Coast species, from a proof kindly furnished by the author.

been unfortunately distributed under the name “ V. sincera, Say,” which had 
been previously given to the specimens, and under which they are quoted in 

the Check-List of 1860, no. 456. According to Mr. B., V. sincera is “ like 


ecarinate forms of V. tricarinata, Say,” to which the Clear Lake specimens 
bear but slight resemblance. | 

fomatiopsis Binneyt, Tryon. 

Fluminicola fusca, Hald. (Leptoxis f.). Shores of Lake Utah, Capt. Burton. 

117. Of the West Coast species of Melaniade we are unable to offer any 
list embracing the synonymy, as the materials are at present in the hands of 
Mr. Tryon for elimination, and his labours are not yet sufficiently advanced 
to furnish a report. His Manual of the North American Melaniade will be 
published by the Smithsonian Institution. The animals of many species have 
already been dissected by Dr. Stimpson*. It 1s unfortunate that in the two 
most important branches of North American freshwater molluscs, the Me- 
laniadee and the Unionide, there exists a radical difference of opinion between 
the leading writers, which has sometimes assumed the appearance of per- 
sonal animosity. Malacologists east of the Atlantic, unwilling to become 
partisans when the leading nomenclators of the rival schools are equally 
honoured, have to a great extent declined to pay attention to the unexhausted 
riches of the American waters, regarding any settlement of the disputed 
points as hopeless. Dr. Isaac Lea, who has spared no expense in illustrating 
his publications of the results of a life-long study, follows the restrictions 
on the priority-rule allowed by the British Association Committee. Other 
writers, however, claim a certainty in identifying the supposed species of 
Rafinesque and other similarly inaccurate authors, which would be considered 
by most English naturalists as not warranted by the few loose words of de- 
scription given. It would be well if the student were permitted to start from 
the first carefully ascertained landmark, rather than from the defaced tracks 
of the first hunter. 

In the Check-List of North-American Fluviatile Gasteropods, published by 
the Smithsonian Institution, June 1860, which contains the names of 405 
(supposed) species of Melania, Lithasia, Gyrotoma, Leptowis, and Jo, Mr.Binney 
assigns the following eleven to the West Coast. None of them are accredited 
to the eastern division. 

45. Melania bulbosa, Gld. | 249. Melania Shastaénsis, Lea. Shasta 
104. Melania exigua, Cony. and Scott Rivers.

211. Melana plicifera, Lea. 360. Melania fusca, Hald. 

118. Dr. Lea’s Check-List of the Unionide (June 1860), after eliminating 
synonyms, assigns to America, north of Mexico, no fewer than 552 species 
of Unio, Margaritana, and Anodonta. The type-specimens of the species 
described by Dr. Gould from the United States Exploring Expedition were 
submitted to Dr. Lea’s inspection, and confirmed his previous opinion that 
they were varieties of those before known. The U. famelicus, Gld., he pro- 
nounced to be a South-American shell; but it appears, without note, in the 
Check List, no. 133, probably by oversight. The only widely diffused species 
is the long-famed ‘ pearl-mussel” of the Conway and other British streams, 
The following seven are accredited to the Pacific coast :— 

* See his very interesting and important paper “ On the structural Characters of the so- 
ealled Melanians of North America,” in the ‘American Journal of Science,’ vol. xxxviii., 
July 1864, pp. 41-53. It appears that the sexual system is quite distinct’ from that of the 
ordinary Ctenobranchiate Gasteropods, and approaches the Cyclobranchiates.

New York, well known for his special devotion to this department, has con- 
sented to prepare a Manual of the Cyrenide inhabiting American waters. 
All the accessible materials from the West Coast are in his hands for exami- 
nation. The first part of his ‘“‘ Monograph of the Species of Spherium of 
North and South America” is printed in the ‘ Proc. Ac. N. Sc. Phil.’ 1861, 
pp. 402 et seq., and contains quotations of five species, nos. 4, 7, 9, 10, 1i, 
with synonymy, from Washington Ter., Oregon, and California. He has 
kindly (in advance of his intended publications) furnished to Mr. W. G. Bin- 
ney the following MS. ‘Synopsis of the Corbiculidee of the West Coast of 
North America,” with liberty to publish in this Report. It is here condensed, 
with synonyms and references, in the nomenclature of the writer.

120. Of the tertiary fossils throwing light on existing species no addi- 
tional information has yet been published. We cannot but hope that the 
researches of Mr. Gabb, on the fossils collected by the Californian Geological 
Survey, will develope relations of great interest between the existing and 
former conditions of the continent. The Astorian fossils described by Mr. 
Conrad from the U. 8. Exploring Expedition (vol. x., Geology, Philadelphia, . 
1849), and tabulated in the first Report, p. 367, belong to the Smithsonian 
Institution, but were not discovered therein 1860. All of them, however (in- 
cluding the indeterminate species), are figured in the atlas of plates. They 
resemble the fossils of the Pacific Railroad Expeditions in being very imper- 
fect, for which reason the following criticisms may prove erroneous. ‘he 
general aspect of the collection betokens the Miocene period. 

Mya abrupta, Conr., may be the young of Glycimeris generosa, Gd. 

Thracia trapexoides, Conr., may be curta, Conr. 

Solemya ventricosa, Conr., has the aspect of a large Lazaria. 

Tellina arctata, Conr., closely resembles Macoma, var. expansa. 

Tellina emacerata, Conr., is perhaps Bodegensis, Hds. 

Lucina acutilineata, Conr., appears to be borealis, Linn. 

Cardita subtenta, Conr.,= Venericardia borealis, Cony. 

Nucula divaricata, Conr.,= Acila castrensis, Hds. 

Pectunculus patulus, Conr., may be septentrionalis, Midd. 

Pectunculus nitens, Conr., resembles Psephis tantilla, Gld. 

Pecten propatulus, Conr. A very fine specimen, enclosed in a large nodule 
from Oregon, was presented to the Brit. Mus. by Mr. C. Pace. If not identical 
with Amusium caurinum, Gld., it is most closely allied, especially to the 
Japanese form. 

* Mr. Prime assigns no reason for changing Dr. Gould’s Lucina into a Cyclas, nor any 
authority for “ California.” He was, perhaps, misled by the artist’s engraved references to 
the figures 528, a, >, where he has drawn a rule, referring to the Cyclades above, instead of 
writing Zucina. It is assigned to ‘‘?Coast of Patagonia” in ‘ Otia,’ p. 63, and to “?R. 
Janeiro” in ‘ E. E. Moll.” p.414. In each place the shell is compared to an As/ar/e or 
Cyprina, with lateral teeth. The type was not returned to the Smithsonian Institution ; 
but the diagnosis states that it is “chalky, thickened within the deep and jagged pallial 
hne, sculpture faint but decussated, and margin finely crenulated,’—characters more con- 
sistent with Lucina, s.g. Myrtea, than with Cyclas. If the type cannot be recovered, per= 
haps the species may be dropped, as it is not the Lucina (Myrtea) lenticula, Rve. 


680 REPORT—1863. 

Tercbratila nitens, Conr., is very probably Waldhetmia pulvinata, Gd. 

Bulla petrosa, Conr., has the shape of Tornatina eximia, Bd. 

Crepidula prorupta, Conr., is certainly princeps, Midd. 

Turritella, sp. ind., resembles Mesalia lacteola. 

?Dolivm petrosum, Conr., resembles the young of Priene nodosa, Chemn. 

Fusus geniculus, Cony. A similar shell has just been taken at the Farallones 
by Dr. Cooper. 

121. To correct the general table of “Mollusca of the West Coast of N. 
America’’ (First Report, pp. 298-845), and the deductions founded upon it 
(pp. 346-367), would involve the necessity of reprinting a considerable por- 
tion. The student, being now in possession of all the known sources of 
fresh information, can with his own peu strike out the spurious species, alter 
the synonyms, insert the newly discovered forms, and make the requisite 
corrections in the elassified results.’ 

122. With regard to the tropical fauna, the researches at Cape St. Lucas 
and in the interior of the Gulf of California, though leaving much to be 
desired, bear-out the general conclusions arrived-at in paragraphs 78-87, 
The evidence for the identity of specific forms on the Atlantic and Pacific sides 
of Central America has been greatly confirmed. Dr. Gould writes, ‘‘The 
doctrine of local limitations meets with so few apparent exceptions that we 
admit it as an axiom in zoology that species strongly resembling each other, 
derived from widely diverse localities, especially if a continent intervenes, 
and if no known or plausible means of communication can be assigned, 
should be assumed as different until their identity can be proved (vide E. KE. 
Moll. Intr. p. xi). Much study of living specimens must be made before 
_ the apparent exceptions can be brought under the rule.” It has, however, 
to be borne in mind that the researches of modern geology clearly point to 
considerable alterations in the existing configuration of continents, and m 
the consequent direction of ocean-currents, during the ascertained period ef 
many species now living. Nor are we warranted in the belef that the 
existing fauna in any locality has been created at any one time, or has 
radiated from any single spot. To study the relations of living shells simply 
in connexion with the existing map of the world must lead but to partial 
results. The facts accumulating with regard to the British species, by 
tracing them threugh the northern drift (now found even on the Snowdonian 
range), to the oldest crag deposits when Europe was contained in far different 
boundaries, show how altered may have been the configuration of the new 
world when the oldest of its molluscs were first created. Coordinately with 
the glacial period, Central America may have been a group of islands; co- 
ordinately with the creation of Saaicava pholadis and Chrysodomus antiquus, 
the gulf-weed may have floated between the Rocky Mountains in the 
archipelago of West America, and Japanese molluscs may have known how 
to migrate to the Mediterranean shores. Dr. Gould’s position may there- 
fore be accepted in theory ; yet, in practice, the ‘‘ imperfection of the geological 
record” *, and even of our knowledge of existing species and their variations, 
demands that the greatest caution be exercised in building results on deduc- 
tions from our ignorance. Already the fossil Malea ringens of the Atlantic 
has proved a “ Rosetta Stone” to interpret the Cyprea exanthema, Purpura 
patula, and other Caribbean shells of the Pacific ; and as the geology of the 
West Coast advances, so may we expect to find traces of previous denizens of 

* No student of geographical distribution should omit to weigh carefully the chapter 
on this subject in Darwin’s ‘ Origin of Species,’ and the information given in Lyell’s 
* Antiquity of Man,’ 



American waters, which have bequeathed some species now flourishing, and 
others dying-out, to the existing seas. ‘The present faunas of West America 
ace perhaps the most isolated on the surface of the globe; yet, if we knew 
the ancestry of each specific form, we might find some first appearing with man 
en this planet, others first living even in historic times, others tracing their 
descent from remote periods, and it may be very distant localities, in the ages 
of the Miocene, possibly even of the Eocene oceans. These suppositions are 
not set forth as theories, but simply to guard against interpretations of facts 
based on conclusions which may be only the results of our necessarily 
imperfect information. 

123. With regard to forms offering local peculiarities sufficient to dis- 
tinguish them from correlative forms offering equal peculiarities in some other 
fauna, we are by no means warranted in assuming that these have sprung 
from different creations. - If a race of men, migrating to a new continent, in 
a very few generations, or even in the next, develope an essentially different 
physique, it is fair to conclude that molluses, borne by a change of currents to 
a distant region, or steadily migrating to the extreme limit of their con- 
ditions of life, will also change their appearance. If the publication of the 
*¢ Darwinian Theory ” has had no other effect, it has at least checked the pro- 
pensity to announce “new species” for differences which may fairly be re- 
garded as varietal. It must also be borne in mind, that if the views of Mr. 
Darwin be only a theory, such also is the name required for the prevalent 
opinion of separate creations for all diverse forms. What indeed can we 
possibly know of the mode of original creation of a single species? We can 
only prove that one or the other supposition best explains a certain class of 
facts. It is not necessary for a working naturalist to commit himself to an 
exclusive belief in either of these theories. He may perhaps best explain 
some facts by the doctrine of separate creation, others by that of natural 
selection. In either case it is his duty to trace-out, as far as possible, the 
limits as well as the powers of variation in every living form, and to guard 
against seeing that only which accords with his pr evailing belief. 

124. The study of Kuropean shells, as they exist in Norway, i in Britain, in 
the Mediterranean, at the Canaries, or as they appear at different depths 
and stations in our own seas, still more as they occur in the widely separated 
periods of the later and middle tertiary ages, is an excellent preparation for 
the examination of either recent or fossil faunas in districts where our know- 
ledge is fragmentary and unconfirmed. It may be safely stated that there are, 
in the American waters, many tropical forms from the West Indies and the 
Pacific shores, some temperate forms from California and the Atlantic, and 
many sub-boreal species in the Vancouver district and the European seas, 
not differing from each other more or even so much as forms universally 
allowed by malacologists to have had a common origin from Britain and the 
Mediterranean, from the Red and the Coralline Crag. 

125. It is interesting to observe that, notwithstanding the probable con- 
nexion of the oceans through the Rocky Mountains during the Miocene age, 
there is extremely little similarity between the special temperate faunas of 
East and West America. Not a single species has yet been proved identical, 
and the allied forms are but few in number. They appear as follows :— 

Califorman species. U. S. Atlantic species. 
Clidiophora punctata, C. trilineata (? =nasuta), 
Lyonsia Californica. L. (hyalina= )Floridana, 
Macoma inconspicua. M. fusca. 

Angulus modestus, A. tener. 
Raeta undulata, R. canaliculata,

Liocardium substriatum, L. Mortoni. 
Juunatia Lewisil. L. heros. 
Nassa mendica. N. trivittata. 
Amyela (species), Anyela (species). 

126. When, however, we approach the region in which boreal and sub- 
boreal forms occur, many species are found in common, and between others 
there is but shght difference. Yet even here there are more British than 
New England species in the West-coast fauna, As might be expected, the 
British species are for the most part those which are also found fossil, and 
therefore have had time to diffuse themselves widely over the hemisphere. 
It ts, however, remarkable that many Crag species have reached Eastern 
Asia and West America which are not found in Grand Manan and New 
England, It is also extraordinary that certain special generic forms of the 
Crag, as Aeila, Miodon, Verticordia, and Solariella, reappear in the North 
Pacitie*. When seeking for an explanation of so remarkable a connexion 
between faunas widely removed in space and time, the correlative fact must 
be borne in mind, that the northern drift?, so widely diffused over Europe 
and Eastern America, has not yet been traced in the western region. The 
following Table exhibits, not only the identical but the similar species be- 
longing to the northern faunas of the Atlantic and Pacific. In the Asiatie 
column, K denotes that the species occurs in the Kamtschatka region, J in 
Japan. In the second column, V signifies the Vancouver district, C the Cali- 
fornian, and I the Sta. Barbara group of islands. The species marked F 
are also fossil. In the third column, C denotes the Coralline, R the Red, and 
M the Mammaliferous Crag. The fourth contains the species living in the 
British seas; the fifth, on the American side of the Atlantic, Gv. standing 
for Greenland.

128. The Vancouver and Californian districts have so many characteristic 
species in common (111 out of 492), that they must be regarded as con- 
stituting one fauna, differing as do the British and Mediterranean regions. 
Full particulars as to the range of the different species may be expected in 

Dr. Cooper’s Report to the Californian Geological Survey. 

One fact must, 

however, be here specially noted, viz. the great peculiarity of the island-fauna.

before considered as essentially tropical. Along with these are not only some 
species of types hitherto regarded as almost exclusively Asiatic, as Verticordia, 
Solariella, and Fulvia modeséa, but also some which belong to the sub-boreal 
distrizt, as Lucina borealis, Venericardia borealis, and Crenella decussata. The 
latter belongs to the British, and not to the N. England form. 

129. Ofthe blending of the temperate and tropical faunas on the peninsula of 
L. California we are still in ignorance. All we know is, that at Margarita Ray 
the shells are still tropical, and that at Cerros Island they are strangely inter- 
mixed. There is pectliarevidence of connexion between the faunas of the penin- 
sula and of 8. America, not only in the land-shells (v. antea, p. 630), but in 
some of the marine forms. Beside identical species with wide range, as many Ca- 
lyptracids, the following are coordinate between the North and South Pacific: —

Time and space do not avail for pointing out further relations with exotic 
faunas; which indeed will be performed with greater correctness after Dr. 
Cooper shall have published his complete lists. 

130. For the sake of avoiding the inconvenience of trinomial nomenclature, 
the subgeneric and varietal names have often been cited in this Report instead 
of the generic and specific, in order that the exact form of the shell quoted 
might be more quickly determined. The diagnoses of all the new species 
here tabulated are written for the press, and will shortly appear in the dif- 
ferent scientific journals. Additional specimens will probably prove several 
forms to be conspecific which are here treated as distinct. In the present 
state of the science, absolute certainty is not to be attained. The object of 
the writer* has been principally to bring together the works of his prede- 
cessors, and so to arrange and describe the new materials that those who 
continue his labours may be able to draw their own conclusions from existing 
data. In order to facilitate reference, a brief index is here given of the 
subject-matter of the former and of the present Reports. 

* The best thanks of the writer are due to Hugh Cuming, Esq., for the free use of his 
collection ; to Messrs. H. & A. Adams, Hanley, Reeve, and Sowerby, for aid in identifying 
specimens ; to the officers and naturalists connected with the Smithsonian Institution ; 
to Dr. A. A. Gould, for very valuable corrections ; and generally to authors and friends, 
who have kindly rendered him all the assistance in their power. He earnestly invites 
criticisms on the subject-matter of the two Reports ; in order that they may be embodied, 
and errors corrected, in the Manuals of the West-Coast Mollusea which he has undertaken 
to prepare for the Smithsonian Institution.

Review or Pror. C. B. Apams’s ‘CATALOGUE OF THE SHELLS 
or PanaMA’*, FROM THE Tyre SreciMENS. By Puiuie P, 
Carpenter, B.A., Pu.D. 

A résumé of this important contribution to our knowledge of local 
faunas, and a comparison with the British Museum ‘ Descriptive 
Catalogue of the Reigen Collection of Mazatlan Mollusca,’ is given 
in the ‘Report of the British Association’ for 1856, pp. 265-281. 
Full series of the old species, and the first specimens of the new, 
were deposited by Prof. Adams in the Museum of Amherst College, 
which also contains similar series of the Professor’s Caribbean col- 
lections. The second specimens of new species were sent to Mr. 
Cuming, and through his kindness were freely used in preparing 
the Mazatlan Catalogue, thus avoiding the necessity of many syno- 
nyms. An instructive lesson in candour and forbearance may be 
learnt by comparing together the works of any two naturalists of 
equal celebrity, or by comparing either of them with the types. 
With the best desires for accuracy, and the greatest care, it is hardly 
possible for an author to describe so that his readers shall see shells 
as he sees them. If this be true of such full and precise diagnoses 
as those of Adams and Gould, how much greater must be the diffi- 
culty to foreigners of recognizing shells from the brief descriptions 
of Broderip, Lamarck, and the older writers generally. ‘The careful 

* Catalogue of Shells collected at Panama; with Notes on their Synonymy, 
Station, and Geographical Distribution: by C. B. Adams, Professor of Zoolozy, 
&c., n Amherst College, Mass, Reprinted from the ‘Annas of Lyceum or Nat. 
Hist. N. Y.,’ vol. v. New York, 1832. 



preservation of types therefore, and the interchange of specimens 
named from types, is of the first impor tance to save the time and 
ensure the accuracy of succeeding writers. The Smithsonian Insti- 
_ tution has fully recognized this principle by directing that the first 
available duplicate of all type species described from its collections 
shall be deposited in some museum open to students on the other 
side of the Atlantic. 

As the authorities of Amherst College had not taken any steps 
to figure their uniqne specimens, and as Prof. Adams’s determina- 
tions af old species had not been verified, [ made it my business 
(when visiting America to deposit the first duplicate series of the 
Mazatlan Shells in the New York State Museum at Albany) to com- 
pare Prof. Adams’s collection, on the spot, with his published book, 
m my copy of which I made my notes and sketches at the time. 
Every facility was afforded me by the Curator. I was allowed freely 
to handle the specimens in the presence of his assistant, and to draw 
the minute species under my microscope. —_ I took with me for com- 
parison the drawings of the minute Mazatlan shells in the British 
Museum. The species being numbered in both the Panama and the 
Mazatlan lists, it is easy now ‘to institute a comparison between them. 
They are here distinguished by the initials P. and M. 

P. 1. Ovula avena. May be distinct from Radius variabilis, 
M.,435, being much more stumpy, with a thicker lip; but the few 
specimens are in poor condition, and the differences may be accidents 
of station. 

2. Ovula emarginata=Carinea e. Quite distinct from its Carib- 
bean analogue C. gibbosa. 

3. Ovula neglecta, C. B. Ad., is probably a small variety of Ra- 
dius variabilts. 

4. Ovula variabilis, C. B. Ad.= Radius v., M. 435. 
5. Ovula, sp. ind., probably =variabilis, jun. 
6. Cyprea arabicula= Aricia a., M. 438. 

7. Cyprea cervinetta=C. exanthema, M. 436. Taving now 
examined a multitude of specimens from different stations on the 
west coast, which differ from each other quite as much as they do 
from the typical Caribbean forms, I am confirmed in the belief of 
their identity. 

8. Cyprea punctulata=dricia p. Erroneously given, in M. 
p- 374, asa probable synonym of 4. arabicula. It is less thickened 
at the sides, with smaller spots. Although specimens of arabicula 
graduate into it at the back, it may always be known by the mouth, 
which has its teeth much further apart. 

9. Cyprea pustuluta=Trivia p., M. 439. 


10. Cyprea radians=Trivia r., M. 440. 

ll. Cyprea rubescens=dead sp. of Trivia sanguinea, M. 442. 
12. Cyprea sanguinea= Trivia s., M. 442. 

13. Erato scabriuscula. Stet. 

14. Marginalla minor. Stet, M. 587. 

15. Marginella sapotilla. The Panama specimens collected by 
Prof. Adams, and abundantly by others, more closely resemble M. 
prunum than the type M. sapoti/a of Hinds, which is a much smaller 
shell. The Caribbean shells (which are found across the Isthmus 
at Aspinwall) differ omly im having a sharper angle in the labrum at 
the posterior notch. Adanson’s habitat, doubted by Prof. Adams 
(note, p. 41), is confirmed by specimens in the Bristol Institution 
brought from Sierra Leone by Chief Justice Rankine. The Pacific 
shells are probably conspecific, sufficient evidence being now in our 
possession that the two oceans were united at least as late as the 
Miocene epoch*. 

16. Mitra funiculata. Stet. 
17. Mitra lens, M. 585. 

18. Mitra nucleola. Closely resembling young specimens of the 
Caribbean M. granulosa. 

19. Mitra solitaria, C. B. Ad.=Zierliana s. Other specimens 
have since been found of this characteristic species. The “ trans- 
verse ribs’ can scarcely be said to be ‘‘ obsolete anteriorly.” 

20. Mitra tristis=Strigatella t., M. 586. 
21. Terebra elata=Myurella e. 

22. Terebra larveformis=Myurella 1. 

23, 24. Stent. 

25. Terebra tuberculosa= Myurella t. 

26. Terebra varicosa. This may possibly be a very young speci- 
men of Suéu/a v.; but I think it distinct. 

27-31. Sp. ind. A specimen of Luryta fulgurata, M. 455, is in 
the museum, as from Panama, but not of Prof. Adams’s collecting. 

32. Olwa angulata, M. 590. 

* The specimens in the Cumingian Museum, named M. cerulescens at the time 
of the British Association Report, are now labelled ‘‘ sapotilla, Hds., 5-13 fathoms 
sandy mud, Panama, H. C.” Another set of Pacific shells (notch-angle rounded) 
are given as ‘“ Marginella n. s., Panama,” ‘San Domingo” having been erased. 
The large West Indian form (notch-angle sharp) is given as ‘‘ cewrulescens, var., 
Lam., 10 fathoms sandy mud, Panama.” Another set of large shells, with sharp 
angle, and labrum tinted behind, is given as ‘‘ cerulescens, Lam., Panama,” but 
without authority. The small West-Indian form (like the typical sapo/illa) is 
given as “glans, Mke.” Either in this, as in other instances, error has crept into 
the locality-marks, or else even the distinction pointed out by Mr. Redfield (who 
has given peculiar study to this genus) cannot be relied on for separating the spe- 
e1.s geographivally, 

12 177 


33. Oliva araneosa=O. meichersi, M. 591. Prof. Adams’s shanty 
specimen can scarcely be distinguished from that which he marked 
“OQ. literata, Alabama.” But the ordinary aspect of the shells O. 
reticularis trom the Caribbean Islands, O. /iterata trom the coast of 
the Southern States, and O. me/chersi trom the Pacific, is sutticieutly 
distinct (for the genus). 

34. Oliva inconspicua, C. B. Ad.= Olivella i., M2599. Some of 
the shells referred to this species from Panama, Mazatlan, and Cape 
St. Lucas graduate into the Caribbean O. oryza ; others’into dwarf 
forms of O. gracilis. The species either needs revision from fresh 
specimens, or should be merged into O. gracilis. 

35. Oliva pellucida, C. B. Ad. Dead specimen; differs from 
Olivella p., Rve. 

36. Oliva porphyria. Stet. 

37. Oliva semistriata=Olivella s. Closely resembles O. colu- 

38. Oliva testacea= Agaronia t., M. 602. 
39. Oliva undatella= Olivella u., M. 595. 

40. Oliva venulata. This shanty specimen is O. angulata, jun. 
The O. venulata, M. 593, is named by Prof. Adams O julietta, as 
also by Mke. (non Duel.). The true O. ju/ietta (Guacomayo, Mus. 
Smiths.) is the Pacific ‘‘analogue”’ of O. fusiformis. 

41. Oliva volutella= Olivella v. It is surprising that this species, 
so immensely common at Panama and up the coast, should not reach 
the Gulf, and that the equally common O. ¢ergina of Mazatlan and 
O. gracilis of Cape St. Lucas and Acapulco should be rare elsewhere, 
while the larger Olives are found from Guaymas to the equator. 
O. dama (=lineolata, Gray, C. B. Ad.), abundant at Mazatlan, was 
bought, not collected, by the Professor at Panama. 

42 Planaxis planicostata. Stet. Also immensely common at 
Panama, though absent trom Mazatlan. 

43. Nassa canescens, C. B. Ad. Taving compared this unique 
specimen with P. 50, q. v., I can speak to their complete identity. 
The “pale grey”’ of the ‘‘interspaces”’ is due to the shell being 

44, 45. Stent. 

46. Nassa gemmulosa=M. 631, exactly. 

47. Stet. 

48. Nassa luteostoma=M. 623. 

49. Nassa nodifera. Also found at Guaymas. 

50. Nassa pagodus, C. B. Ad. (+N. canescens, P. 43) = N. 
(? nagodus, var.) acuta, M. 625. It is certainly the N. decussata 
oi Kien., but probably not of Lam, Whether it is the Triton pago- 
dus cf Rye. I am still unable to say, the type being apparently lost. 
We are bound to suppose that Mr. Reeve could not mistake so de- 



cided a Nassa for a Triton; so that if Lamarck’s is a similar Easte-n 
species, the West American may stand as N. acuta. 

21. Nassa panamensis, C.B. Ad. The Professor rightly marked 
his duplicates “‘ewilis, Pws.’ This abundant shell, having a Pisa- 
noid, not a Nassoid operculum, probably belongs to Phos, Northia, 
| or some genus not yet elimfnated. N. obsoleta, Say, has a similar 
L operculum, and appears nearly related. 

i 02. Nassa provima. The unique specimen appears to be an ex- 
treme form of WN. versicolor, P. 55. 

53. Nassa ? scabriuscula, C. B. Ad. (non Pws.)=N. complanata, 
Pyws.: Vv. b.00. 

| 54. Nassa striata, C. B. Ad. The two type specimens, one young, 
the other adult, both belong to a variety of versicolor. The phrase, 
| “last whorl spirally canaliculate on the left side,’ simply expresses 
the ordinary character of Nassa. The specimens in Mus. Cuming., 
however, from another source, differ somewhat in the nucleus from 
the small form of N. versicolor. These= N. paupera, Glid., teste 
Cuming, and should take that name. 

55. Nassa versicolor, C. B. Ad., M. 632. The revolving striz 
vary so greatly in this species, as well as the size, obesity, and colour, 
that it is hard to assign its limits. The specimens marked versicolor 
by the Professor vary much more among themselves than the ex- 
treme ones do from his proxwma and striata. The apex and early 
whorls of each are exactly the same under the microscope. It is pos- 
sible that the unique crebristriata, M. 633, is also an extreme variety. 


56. Nassa wilsont appears to be only a dwarf form of P. 53, 
N. complanata. 

57. Buccinum crassum= Phos ec. 
58. Buceinum distortum= Clavella d. 
59. Buccinum insigne= Pisania i., M. 659. 

60. Buccinum lugubre, C. B. Ad. The Professor marked this shell 
on his card “ Murex? ?”; then “ Fusus?”’: then “ Fusus nodu- 
losus, Ad.,n.s.”; then “ Buccinum (?) lugubre, Ad., n.s.’; so that 
the old genera were sometimes as badly defined as the new ones. It 
may rank with Pisania. 

61. Buccinum pagodus = Pisania p. 

62. Buccinum pristis=Northia serrate. 

63. Buccinum ringens= Pisania r.. M. 663. 

64. Buccinum sanguinolentum= Pisania s., M. 662. 
65. Buccinum stimpsonianum=WNassa st. 

66. Dolium ringens= Malea r. 

67. Monoceros brevidentatum. This species, very common at 
Panama, has been transported over (not through) the Pacific, to San 
Francisco and Monterey v. P page 73. 



68. Monoceros cingulatum= Leucozonia c., M. 583. 
69. Purpura carolensis=P. triangularis, M. 608. 

70. Purpura foveolata= Cuma costata, M. 610, probably; but the 
markings have been too much obliterated to decide with confidence. 

71. Purpura kiosquiformis=Cuma k., M. 609. There are in 
the collection three shells, labelled by the Professor ‘“P. purpuroides 
(Fusus), Orb., Panama” = Pisania d’orbignyi, Rve. No authority 
is given, and they probably came from Peru. 

72. Purpura, sp. ind. This shell is not to be found. It has 
probably been put with the last, of which it is no doubt a variety : 
v. M: p.,482. 

73. Purpura melo. Stet. 

74. Purpura osculans appears to be the young of Rhizocheilus 
nux, M. 611; of which R. distans, Cpr., and probably LR. calzfor- 
nicus, A. Ad., are only varieties. 

. Purpura tecta=Cuma t. 
. Purpura undata=P. biserialis, M. 606. 

NS Or 

. Columbella atramentaria= Anachis a. 


. Columbella bicanalifera=Strembina b. 


. Columbella boivinit. This species must rank with (dnachis 
or) Engina*, the operculum being Pisanoid. 

50. Columbella conspicua= Anachis c. 

81. Columbella costellata, C. B. Ad. =Anachis scalarina, Sby., 
M. 645; not A. costellata, Sby., M. 646. 

82. Columbella diminuta=Anachis d. 

83. Columbella dorsata=Strombina d. 

84. Columbella fluctuata= Anachis fi. 

85. Columbella fulva=Anachis f., M. 648. 

86. Columbella fuscata, M. 617. The small var. is C. festiva, 
87. Columbella gibberula=Strombina g. 

88. Columbella gracilis=Anachis g. 

89. Columbella guttata=WNitidella cribraria, M. 613. 
90, 91, 92. Stent. 

93. Columbella lyrata=Anachis | 

94. Columbella major, M. 615. 

95. Columbella modesta=Truncaria m. It might be convenient 
to leave this genus as arranged by Messrs. H. and A. Ad. Mr. 
Henry Adams desires to restrict it to the type species, in which 

* Of the shells called by French authors Semi-Ricinula. those with a Purpuroid 
operculum may be retained as Sistrum, while those with Pisanoid operculum 
should be removed as Engina, with Anachis, to the Muricida. 



cease this and similar species must be moved to Nifedella, if the oper- 
culum be (as is presumed) Purpuroid ; or to dmyela, if Nassoid. 

96. Columbella masta== Anachis m. 
97 Columbella nigricans= Anachis n. 

98. Columbella parva. This appears to be only a dead specimen 
of C. pygmea, P. 100. 

99. Columbella pulchrior is probably a Nitidella. 
100. Columbella pygmea= Anacnis p., M. 051. 

101. Columbella rugosa=Anachis r. ‘Vhis appears to be the 
commonest and most variable species of the genus. The typical 
specimens are somewhat stumpy, with stout knobs. Then the knobs 
pass into long, compressed ridges, and finally change into narrow 
bars. ‘These are wide apart, or close, or nearly evanescent ou the 
back. The shape passes from the stumpy to an acuminate form 
like costellata. Some adults are more than twice the size of others; 
but the same variations are found in both extremes. The colours 
are generally laid on in patches on the knobby specimens; in fine 
flames, on the smoother ones. In all varieties, it is known from 
fiuctuata by the spiral strize over the whole surface ; and from varia 
by the shoulder, more or less developed into a keel, on the whorls of 
the spire. 

102. Columbella strombiformis, M. 616. 
103. Columbella tessellata, C. B. Ad. (non Gask.) = Anachis gua- 

temalensis, Rve. 
104. Columbella turrita=Strombina t. 
105. Columbella varia = Anachis v. 

106. Columbella sp. ind. is the young of a species in Mus. 
Cuming., resembling harpeformis. 

107 Ricinula carbonaria=Engina ec. 

108. Ricinula jugosa may be an Engina, but has more the aspect 
of the Pacific group Peristernia. 

109. Ricinula reeviana=Engina pulchra, Rve. 

110. Cassis abbreviata=Bezoardica a. On comparing a large 
series of specimens from Cape St. Lucas with a similar series of C. 
inflata from Texas, I was unable to discover any specific differences. 
It varies greatly, from each ocean, in painting, sculpture, height of 
spire, &c. 

111. Cassis coarctata=Levenia ¢ 

112, 1135, 114(=M. 480), 1 16, 116.(= Me. 481), 117, 118* Cie 
476), 119* (=M. 477), 120 (=M. 475), 121, 122 (=M. 381, 
galeatus), 123 (=M. 449), 124 (=M. 448), 125. Stent. 

* Having now examined a large number of specimens of these two forms, I 
have no hesitation whatever in regarding Conus regalitatis as simply a variety of 

C. purpurascens. Similar differences may be observed in comparing large series 
of almost all Cones, 181 


126. Triton chemnitzii= Arygcbhucecnum nodosum, M. 580. These 
shells are small and turreted. ‘Those Prof. Adams marked “ 7’. cin- 
gulatum, Lam., EK. Indies,’? are much more like the Mazatlan shells, 

127. Triton constrictus=Distortio c. The specimens of this 
group from the Pacific Coast, trom the Gulf of Mexico, and from 
the China Seas are very difficult to discriminate. 

128. Triton fusoides. This unique and very elegant shell can 
scarcely be called a Triton, even of the Epidromus ‘type. It may 
perhaps rank with Huthria, but is peculiar in possessing a distinct 
anterior sinus, near the Eanal like Rostellaria. 

129) ¥30, UT1324) 133, 1345, 135.’ Stents 
136. Murex dubius=Muricidea dubia, M. 673. 
137. Murex erosus= Muricidea e. 

138. Murex radix=Phyllonotus r. The Professor’s specimens 
of this species are remarkably fine, more nearly resembling the Gulf 
nigritus than the heavy stumpy shells usually seen. lis yous 
specimens are heavier, but more turreted, than the young nigritus. 
The opercula appear to have fewer frills; but such differences may 
be due only to station. The specimens he marked ambiguus (with- 
out locality) belong to the typical nigritus. Phyllonotus radix and 
nigritus graduate ito each other almost as freely as the latter does 
luto ambiguus: v. M. 666. 

13°. Murex rectirostris. This and kindred species run into each 
other too closely, when adult, to speak with any confidence on so 
young a specimen in bad condition. 

140. Murex recurvirostris. This specimen is also far too imper- 
fect to affiliate: v. M. 665. 

141. Murex regius=Phyllonotus r., M. 670. 

142. Murex salebrosus=Vitularia s., M.612. The curious group 
of Muricoid Purpurids culminates on the West American shores. It 
is represented in the north temperate regions by Cerastoma, on the 
warmer shores by Chorus, and in the tropical regions by Vitularia. 
The Lower Californian Murer belcheri, Hds., belongs to the group. 
Dr. Alcock (who has succeeded the late Capt. Brown as Curator of 
the Manchester Natural History Museum) has pointed out very well- 
marked physiological distinctions between the two families, which 
are coordinate with the differences in the opercula. 

* Dr. Gray (Guide to Mollusca, pp. 39, 42) leaves the round-variced Ranellids, 
as Apollon, in the T’ritonide, “ operc. annular, nucleus subapical, within the 
apex ;” but removes the sharp-variced species, as Ranella, to the Cassidide, and 
figures the operculum like Bezoardica, ‘“ half- ovate, nucleus central, lateral, in- 
ternal.” The operculum of &. ceglata, No. 132, is almost identical with Murezx, 
and the shell accords with Apollon; but R. nitida, No. 134, which has very sharp 
varices, has its operculum widely removed from Sezoardica. It is closely related 
to that of Cerastoma, Rhizocheilus, and some of the Ocinebre; nucleus near the 
anterior end of the labrum; labral portions of the annular layers eroded ; scar as 
in Purpurids, with about thiee roughly angular ridges of growth, 



143. Murex vibex. This Peruvian species also probably belongs 
to the Purpurid group. 

144. Murex vittatus=Muricidea v. 

145. (=M. 638), 146 (=M. 579). Stent. 

147. Fusus bellus, C. B. Ad. This is a pretty little shell, resem- 
bling a young Me¢u/a, and is probably one of the species assigned 
with doubt to that genus, M. 619-622, or to Fusus, M.642. [should 
erase the words, ‘‘some of which are varicoid”’ (referring to the ra- 
diating ribs), as my glass did not enable me to detect a single one. 

148. Fasciolaria granosa. A minute specimen is of the size and 
general appearance of the fry of Chrysodomus antiquus, with one and 
a half irregular nuclear whorls. An adult has its operculum broken 
and mended from a subcentral nucleas—a mode of proceeding which 
I have now observed in such a multitude of species belonging to dif- 
ferent families of Proboscidifers and Toxifers that I venture to assign 
it as the original type of their opercula, from which the special 
family forms are modifications of high development. Of the spiral 
Rostrifers there is not yet sufficient evidence to speak*. 

149. Turbinella cestus, M. 581. 

150. Turbinella custanea= Latirus c. 

151. Turbinella cerata=Latirus c., M.582. 

152. Turbinella rudis=Latirus r. 

153. Turbinella spadicea= Latirus s. 

154. Cancellaria affinis. Very closely allied to C. urceolatu, 
M. 445. 

195; 156, 157 (=M. 446), 158, 159. Stent. 

160. Cancellaria pygmea is simply a young specimen of C. g¢- 
niostoma, no. 157. 

161, 162. Stent. 

163. Pleurotoma aterrima=Drillia a. 

164. Pleurotoma atrior. This is a fine specimen, not quite ma- 
ture in the lip, of Drillia aterrima, var. melchersi, M. 461. 

165. Pleurotoma bicanalifera=Clathurella b. 

166. Pleurotoma collaris=Drillia ce. 

167. Pleurotoma concinna=Cithara ec. 

168. Pleurotoma corrugata= Drillia c. 

169. Pleurotoma discors=Drilliad. Probably a finely developed 
variety of aterrima. 

* When at Charleston, S. C., I had an opportunity of examining many very fine 
specimens of the giant Fasciolaria, so seldom seen in this country, of which a 
broken specimen in my collection measures 20 in. In sculpture, colour, and 
general appearance some were so very like /*. princeps, M. 584, that I was tempted 
to consider the latter a degraded iocai vanevy, uli 1 found the opeiculum, which 
is destitute of the singular grooving of the Gulf species. 



170. Pleurotoma duplicata= briltva d. 

171. Pleuretoma excentricu=Drilia e. I cannot endorse this 
and some other determinations of critical species of Pleurotomids, 
not being able to remove the specimens for comparison with types. 
Even the types in Mus. Cuming. do not always present satisfactory 
diagnostic characters. 

172. Pleurotoma exigua=Mangelia e. I could not discover “the 
rest in pairs.” 

173. Pleurotoma gemmulosa= Mangelia g. 

174. Pleurotoma grandimaculata=Drillia g. 

175. Pleurotoma incrassata=Drillia 7., M. 459. The collection 
contains D. luctuosa, M. 467, as trom Panama, but not of the Pro- 
fessor’s collecting. 

176. Pleurotoma nigerrima= Drillia n. 

177. Pleurotoma obeliscus=Drillia 0. Very worn and doubtful. 

178. Pleurotoma olivacea. Closely resembles P. funiculata, 
M. 457. 

179. Pleurotoma pallida=Drillia p, 

186. Pleurotoma rigida=Clathurella r. 

181. Pleurotoma rudis. It is probable that this is not the true 
Drillia rudis, being distinguished by white spots on the knobs: 
v. M. 460. 

182. Pleurotoma rustica=Drillia aterrima, var. melchersi, M. 
461. These specimens being very wern, their specific identity with 
P. 164 was not recognized by the Professor. One shell, marked 
‘rustica, var.,”’ may be the true rustica—a species by no means 
satisfactorily distinguished. 

183. Pleurotoma striosa=Drillia s. 

184. Pleurotoma zonulata= Drillia z.. M. 463. 

185. Pleurotoma, sp. a. A small, dark, purple-brown Mangelia, 
of the leufroy: type. 

186. Pleurotoma, sp. b. <A slender, pure-white, ribbed shell ; 
probably a Cithara. j 

187. Mangelia, sp.c. A young Daphnella. 

188. Mangelia, sp. d. A very worn, black shell; with white, 
knobby ribs. 

189. Mangelia, sp. e. A very small, white shell; resembling a 
young Bela turricula. 

190. Mangelia, sp. f. A very small, white Drillia, with distinct 
posterior notch; spirally striated, with rather sharp ribs. 

191. Mangelia neglecta. Of the “elevated spiral line on the 
middle of the whorls’? J could discover no trace, except of colour, 

It is therefore probable that it=M. acuticostata, Mirage 3. 



192. Mangelia sulcosa is the true Columbella s of Sby. 
193. Cerithium adustum=C. maculosum, M. 381. 
194. Cerithium assimilatum= Cerithiopsis a., M. 563. , 

195. Cerithium bimarginatum=Cerithiopsis 6, A good species ; 
but I could not detect the ‘‘intermediate raised line.” The apical 
whorls are almost smooth. The ‘ prominent spiral fold” on the 
columella is simply that which bounds the recurved canal. 

196. Cerithium famelicum. Confusion has arisen from the Pro- 
fessor having sent to Mr. Cuming as his type a shell which does not 
answer to the diagnosis, and which is described as (? var.) medioleve, 
M. 382. Ten specimens are retained in the Amherst Museum, of 
which eight are of the uncinatum type, =M. 383, and two of the 
Cumingian. C. uncinatum, being an old species, is probably from 
the Atlantic or E. Indies: if this should prove identical, the name 
fumelicum must be dropped; if distinct, retained for the west coast 
uncinoids, according to the diagnosis. After an examiuation of a 
large series of specimens collected by Mr. Xantus at Cape St. Lucas, 
I am confirmed in the belief that the Cumingian shell is a distinct 
species, which must stand as C. medioleve. 

197. Cerithium gemmatum= Rhinoclavis gemmatus, M. 389. So 
much confusion has arisen from raising specific names to the generic 
peerage, that whenever a good distinct name has been given, it ap- 
pears best to retain it—the unbending rule of mere priority for work 
which is sometimes slovenly, and therefore best forgotten, notwith- 

_ 198. Cerithium ? interruptum, C. B. Ad. (non Mke.=M. 388). 
Great confusion has arisen from this erroneous determination, as 
may be seen by comparing the Maz. Cat. zm /oco with the mono- 
graph of Sowerby, jun., who has redescribed the southern, highly 
sculptured forms of the true znterruptum as C. galapaginis. 

198 and 199 are regarded by Messrs. Cuming and Sowerby as 
varieties of 

200. Cerithium irroratum, C. B. Ad. (Gld. ipse et MSS., non 
Gld. in Expl. Exp.) =C. stercusmuscarum, M, 387. The aspect of 
the Panama shells is so different from that of the Mazatlan speci- 
mens that [ did not wonder at Dr. Gould’s opinion that they were 
distinct. He was, however, misled in affiliating the former to his 
C. irroratum, of which I fortunately discovered the figured type in 
the Smithsonian Institution, and which proves to be (according to 
Mr. Cuming) the C. obeswm of Sby. sen., from the Philippines. It 
is fortunate therefore that the name may be entirely dropped. Some 
of the specimens of no. 198 graduate sufficiently closely to the Ma- 
zatlan form; those of no. 199 are intermediate; while those of 
no. 200 present a stronger but smaller shell, well armed with small 
nodules, which are not to be seen in the fine Gulf specimens. 

201. Cerithium neglectum = Cerithiopsis n. 

202. Cerithium pacificum. Stet. 


203. Cerithium pauperculum is a good, new species of Chrysallida. 
The Professor probably did not recognize the Chemnitzoid apex aud 
the Ofostomoid plait. The following alterations may be made in 
the diagnosis :—Shell pale orange [vot horn], with six [not five] 
keels on the spire; spiral ridges anteriorly fainter [not obsolete] ; 
apex sinistral [not acute], of three Paludinoid whorls, the last large 
in proportion; columella effuse [not canaliculated], with a long, 
slender, slanting plait. 

204. Cerithium pulchrum=Cerithidea p. A distinct and truly 
beautiful species, seldom obtained by collectors. ; 

205. Cerithium reevianum=Cerithidea montagnei, M. 394. 

206. Cerithium validum=Cerithidea varicosa, M. 395. The 
Southern shells, in all their changes, present such a different aspect 
from the Gulf specimens, that Lam inclined to regard the form Ma- 
zatlanica as distinct, of which C. albonodosa may prove a variety. 

207. Triphoris alternatus, M. 391. 

208. Triphoris inconspicuus is scarcely even a variety of the last ; 
and does not differ so much as the specimens described under the 
same name, M. 392. 

209. Triphoris infrequens is not the shell described, under the 
same name, M. 393, but is the Cerithiopsis tuberculoides, M. 557. 
It would have been strange if I had recognized the shell from the 
diagnosis ; for both of the specimens are dextral. The apex is nearly 
smooth. I forbear to redescribe nos. 392, 393 of the Maz. Cat., 
as they were separated principally in deference to Prof. Adams’s 
authority, until more numerous specimens should have been examined, 

210. Turritella banksti=T. goniostoma, jun., M. 379. 

211. Caecum diminutum=Cecum firmatum, jun., with numerous 
close rings. All the Professor’s specimens of this genus were dead ; 
most of them pierced by Proboscidifers. They fully confirmed the 
judgments I ventured to form of them in the Maz. Cat. and in the 
*“ Monograph of the Ceecidee,” P. Z. 8S. 1858, p. 413 et seg. 

212. Caecum eburneum=C. firmatum. The rings vary from 
twenty-six to thirty-three. 

213. Cacum firmatum, M. 368. Add to the diagnosis in Maz. 
Cat. p. 320, last line, ‘ operculo vix concavo, suturis minus definitis.” 

214. Cecum leve. The two specimens are too worn for identifi- 
cation, but will pass sufficiently for the species described under the 
same name, M. 372. 

215. Caecum laqueatum. A good species of the E/ephantulum 
group: v. Maz. Cat. p. 315, and P. Z.8. loc. cié. p. 420. 

216. Caecum monstrosum=C, firmatum in the adolescent stage. 

217. Caecum parvum turns out, as was expected, to be=C. unda- 
tum, M. 371. The unique specimen is stunted and dead. 

218. Caecum pygmeum is a small but nearly adult C. frmatum. 




219. Chemnitzia aculeus, M. 521. 

220. Chemnitzia acuminata is a true Chemnitzia, and not a Chiry- 
sallida, as supposed in the Br. Assoc. Report, p. 334. The name 
misleads, as it is a peculiarly broad species. The vertex consists of 
three Paludinoid whorls, of which the apex is visible, projecting a 
little beyond the spire. The ribs, instead of ‘‘ terminating abruptly 
on the periphery of the last whorl,” become gradually evanescent 
round the base *. 

221. Chemnitzia afinis. Comp. M. 523, which was identified 
from Mr. Cuming’s specimen. ‘The diagnosis needs the following 
corrections from the type. The “ribs terminate”’ not very “ abruptly 
at the periphery.”’ Anteriorly very finely striated [not ‘‘ smooth”? |. 
«Last whorl” not “angular at the periphery.’’ Base prolonged. 
It is probably the adult form of my Chemnitzia undata, M. 531, the 
characteristic fine, waved, spiral strize having escaped the Professor's 
notice. The only difierence is that the ribs evanesce more suddenly 
in the Panama than in the Mazatlan shell, which may be due simply 
to age. 

222. Chemnitzia clathratula, part.=Chrysallida clathratula, M. 
513, which was identified from the Cumingian specimen. The spe- 
cimens preserved as types contain, along with this species, one of 
Chrysallida communis, one (almost certainly) of Chrysallida effusa, 
M. 510, and one of Dunkeria subangulata, M.537. Some parts of 
the description appear taken from the latter species: e. g. the “five 
or six” spiral lines, of which there are only four in the Chrysallida ; 
and the angle on the “upper part”’ of the whorls, which in the 
latter are well rounded. 

223. Chemnitzia communis, M.507. This is the type of the 
genus Chrysallida : v. M. pp. 416, 420. Prof. Adams’s tray con- 
tains also one specimen of Chrysallida effusa, M. 510 ; one of Chrys. 
telescopium, M. 508; one of Dunkeria nubangulains M. 537; and 
one which may be a variety of the latter, or a distinct species. 

224. Chemnitzia gracilior. The ‘ well-impressed spiral line”’ is 
only seen in some of the whorls. 
225 Chemunitzia major belongs to the section Dunkeria. I counted 
eighteen (not twenty-four) ribs. 
226. Chemnitzia marginata is a good species of Chrysallida ; but 
I poald not find the “spiral, compressed ridge.” 

227 Chemnitzia panamensis, M.518. I counted twenty-four 
(not twenty-seven) ribs. The tray also contains one specimen of 

* As several errors are here pointed out in the diagnoses of small shells, it is 
right to state that Prof. Adams had not the advantage of a microscope during a 
considerable portion of the work ; nor was the instrument a good one when cb- 
tained. Moreover the incessant demands on his attention as Professor of Astro- 
nomy and Mathematics, as well as of Natural History, and his duties as State 
Geologist of Vermont, did not leave him much time for original research. What 
he accomplished during his short life is marvellous. Had that life been spared to 
revise his works, the necessity foi Luis friendly criticism would not have arisen. 



Ch. C-B-Adamsii, M. 519, with straight ribs; and one with spiral 
sculpture, which may belong to Ch. gracillima, M. 530, but wants 
the produced apex. 

228. Chemnitzia similis, This species most nearly resembles 
aculeus, but is broader, larger, and with more ribs, of which I counted 
from twenty to tweaty-two (uot twenty-six). I shouid not cail the 
whorls “ convex.’’ They are, however, more rounded, and the base 
is more produced, than in the shell called ‘*? similis,” M. 520, which 
is perhaps a variety of panamensis. 

229. Chemnitzia striosa. The early whorls are very slender. 
The spiral strize are on the tops of the ribs, of which I counted from 
twenty-four to thirty-two (instead of ‘about forty’). 

230. Chemnitzia turrita. This species includes the ‘“ Eissoa, 
sp. ind.”’ no. 251. 

231. ? Littorina angiostoma is a Fossarus. 

232. Littorina aspera, M.397. The Mazatlan periwinkles, being 
in good condition, divide themselves very naturally into three 
species. The Panama specimens, being generally eroded, are not so 
easily dealt with. Of Prof. Adams’s specimens here retained, the 
majority belong to aspera, although several of the smaller ones are 
philippii, M. 393. The young appear to be of both species mixed. 
The ‘‘ variety” consists of the abnormal tall specimens of conspersa, 
M. 396, with a few very large philippi intermixed. 

233. Littorina atrata. This abundant little shell is a Fossarus, 
of which the Professor’s ?ddeorbis abjecta, no. 257, is a more ad- 
vanced form. It is possible that one of the Fossari described in 
Maz. Cat., nos. 404, 405, may be conspecific ; but among the mul- 
titude of specimens I could not find one with the nuclear whorls 
sufficiently perfect to decide. The shells vary extremely in shape 
and sculpture. 

234. Littorina conspersa, M. 396. Smaller and generally more 
stumpy than the Mazatlan shells, but containing a few specimens of 
the same extreme forms. 

235. ? Littorina exeavata= Fossarus e. 

236. Littorina fasciata, M. 400. The specimens of this species 
and of L. varia graduate rather closely towards each other. 

237. ? Inttorina foveata. A good species of Fossarus. Read, 
¢¢ Last whorl angular”’ at the umbilicus [not ‘ below the middle’’]. 

238. ? Littorina megasoma. This is also a good species of Fos- 
sarus. The Professor was doubtful whether to refer these forms to 
Littorina or to Narica. 

239. Littorina ? parvula, C.B. Ad. This is not Philippi’s L. 
parvula, but is a dwarf form of the L. philippti, M. 398. ‘The Pro- 
fessor suggests the name L. dudiosa tor this sufficiently well-marked 
species ; but as he catalogued and distributed his specimens under 
? parvula, and kept others under aspera, it may be best to retain 



the name philippii under which it has been very extensively cir. 

240. Littorina pulchra. A very rare species, belonging (with 
fasciuta and varia) to the Melaraphe group. 

241. Littorina puncticulata. This is the normal state of L. con- 
spersa: v. M. 396. 

242. Littorina varia: v. note on P. 236. 

243. Rissoa clandestina. Three specimens appear of this specice 
of Rissoina, closely resembling R. woodwardii, M. 410, but with 
more ribs, and not displaying the intercostal striulz. 

244. Rissoa firmata. Another species of Rissoina, resembling 
R. stricta, M. 408, but smaller. The Professor did not observe 
the fine spiral sculpture, as described in no. 250 ; q. v. 

245. Rissoa fortis. A good species of Rissoina, differing from 
R. janus in the absence of spiral punctures. 

246. ? Rissoa. inconspicua, C. B. Ad., non Alder. The name 
being preoccupied, it is fortunate that the unique shell proves iden- 
tical with Alvania tumida, M. 414. I found twenty (not “twelve 
or fourteen ’’) ridges, which are not “‘ obsolete,’ but become fainter 
anteriorly. The two upper whorls are very finely cancellated. 

247. Rissoa infrequens. The unique specimen of this Rissoina 
is too much worn for description. It has more than the sixteen ribs ; 
and the diagnostic marks must be received with caution. 

248. Rissoa janus. The description of this Jzssoina is drawn 
from a very small, dead, broken specimen, from which the sculpture 
is almost entirely worn away. The “var. a” should be considered 
as the type, being in perfect condition, and the diagnosis be altered 
as follows :—The ‘‘ fine crowded spiral striz”’ are seen all over, as 
are also the “ribs,” which on each whorl “appear as strie,’”’ and 
are not ‘‘ obsolete near the periphery.” The diagnostic character is 
that the spiral strize are composed of rows of minute dots. 

249. Rissoa notabilis. After drawing this unique shell carefully 
under the microscope, and making copious notes on the diagnosis 
from the specimen, an untoward cough lodged it among the meshes 
of the Curator’s carpet, whence I endeavoured in vain to extricate it. 
This unfortunate accident is, however, the less to be regretted, as I 
caa state with perfect confidence that it was exactly identical with 
another shell in the collection, P. 255, q. v.; and with M. 498, 
Parthenia quinquecincta. The “concave summits” of the ribs imply 
that the ribs are sharp, with concave interstices ; and the “ upper 
keel’ is simply due to the angulation of the whorls. Though the 
hp was broken, the columellar plait, as well as the sinistral apex, 
escaped the Professor’s notice. 

250. Rissoa scalariformis. This unique specimen is simply the 
young of Fissoina firmata, P. 244; and probably = Lissoina sp. 
ind. M. 409. 189 


251. Rissoa, sp.ind. This is a broken specimen of Chemnitzva 
turrita, P. 230. 

252. ? Cingula inconspicua. 'This unfortunate name, liable to be 
confounded with Rissoa inconspicua, Alder, and ? Rissoa inconspicua, 
C. B. Ad., will not be needed, as the type belongs to another sub- 
order, and = Chrysallida ovulum, M. 512. The Professor did not 
observe its close relationship with his Chemnitzia communis. 

253. Cingula paupercula, C. B. Ad. A good species. 

254. ? Cingula terebellum= Parthenia exarata, M.501. Although 
I took every pains, in preparing the Maz. Cat.,- to identify Prof. 
Adams’s species, I was not prepared, in the writings of so careful a 
naturalist who had devoted special attention to the minute species, 
to find a Pyramidellid under Trochidee, especially with the mark 
“apex subacute.’ The finding of a more perfect Mazatlan specimen 
enables me to add to the diagnosis :—“ vertice nucleoso parvo, satis 
extante, decliviter sito; interstitiis carinarum transversim rugulosis; 
labro solidiore. Long. °087, long. spir. 057, lat. -058.” 

255. ? Cingula turrita (+P. 249, Rissoa notabilis)=Parthenia 
quinquecincta, M. 498. Whenashell is described under two genera 
in the same sheet, the advocates of unbending priority will find it 
difficult to decide. As each name belongs to a widely removed 
family, that last given is at least the most correct and distinctive. 

256. ? Litiopa saxicola. The Professor states that this “shell 
has the appearance of a Litiopa;” but it wants both the peculiar 
nucleus and the semitruncated columella; also that the “ labium 
has a distinct deposit,”’ of which I could not see any trace in either 
of the specimens. It is probably a Cingula. 

257. ? Adeorbis abjecta. This is the adult form of the shell, of 
which P. 233, Littorina atrata, is the young. ‘The strize are seen on 
the lower as well as the ‘‘upper part of the whorls.’ The umbili- 
cus, though “small” for an Adeorbis, is rather large for a Fossarus, 
to which genus the species undoubtedly belongs. 

258. Vitrinella concinna. 1 could not find the “mere or less 
distinct ridge between the first two keels.” 

259. Vitrinella exigua=M. 305. The omissions in the Pro- 
fessor’s diagnoses of this and other species, being supplied in the 
Maz. Cat., need not be repeated here: v. M. pp. 236-247. 

260. Vitrinella janus. The Professor does not mention the fifth 
keel, which bounds the umbilicus, and within which are the ‘‘ minute 
spiral strive.’ The “transverse strize’’ are strong between keels 
2, 3, and 4; faint between 4 and 5, and between 1 aad 2; and eva- 
nescent near the suture. 

261. Vitrinella minuta. The original type of this ahaa, accords 
better with £thalia than with Teonostoma, to which I had referred 
the Cumingian type. 

262. Vitrinella modesta. The “modesty ”’ of this unique shell is 



eoordinate with considerable attrition, and an umbilicus tilled with 
dirt. It appeared to me regularly rounded, without any keel. The 
“few spiral striae ’’ are probably the remains of what ouce covered 
the whole surface. 

263. Vitrinella panamensis=M. 295. 
264. Vitrinella parva=M. 296. 

265. Vitrinella perparva=M. 304. The coronation of the upper 
keel is seen (though not described) in the type specimen. 

266. Vitrinella regularis. The unique shell can hardly be called 
“‘subdiscoidal,” since the “ spire is convex, moderately elevated.” 
I could not find the “impressed spiral line.” It belongs to Hthalia. 

267. Vitrinella seminuda. The unique type of this species also 
is much worn. [ could not discover the “‘ minute strize of growth.” 
Beneath, there are five spiral liree, and a few spiral strize near the 
mouth. The umbilical region and the base have fine radiating distant 
striae. It comes nearest to VY. carinulata, M. 309, but is distinct. 

268. Vitrinella tricarinata. This unique type is also worn. 
The spiral keels are scarcely ‘“ prominent,” that on the periphery 
being decidedly faint. The ‘transverse striz”’’ are between the 
suture and the nearest rib. The umbilical striee are very faint. 

269. Vitrinella valvatoides. This species probably belongs to 
Ethalia. Beside the keels, there are three obsolete spiral lrae—two 
on the base, and one above the periphery. The umbilicus is bounded 
by a long, thin callosity, which gives a character to the shell inter- 
mediate between the two genera. . 

270. Solarium, sp. ind. a. Of the form represented by this 
species and the next I have been able to examine a large number of 
specimens collected at Cape St. Lucas by Mr. Xantus, and in the 
Gulf of Mexico. I know of no mark by which to distinguish the 
shells from the two oceans. From each locality they vary greatly 
in the size of the umbilicus, and in the strength of sculpture, number 
of knobs, &c. I should consider them all as varieties of S. granu- 
latum, Lam. SS. quadriceps, Hds., appears distinct, though it may 
only be an extreme variety. 

271. Solarium, sp. ind. 6. This contains the specimens with 
coarser sculpture than the last. 

272. Solarium, sp. ind. ec. This is a distinct species of Torinia, 
having the size and general aspect of Helix rotundata. 

273. Trochus catenulatus= Modulus c., M. 401. 

274. Trochus coronulatus=Omphalius c. This species reappears 
at Cape St. Lucas, and is closely allied to O. ligulatus, M. 293. 

275. Trochus leanus=Calliostoma 1. This distinctive generic 
name is strongly to be preferred to the specific Ziziphinus. 

276. Trochus lima. This shell exactiy accords with Callostoma 
antonti, Koch, in Mus. Cuming. 



277. Trochus lividus= Modulus disculus, M. 403. 

278. Trochus panamensis=Omphalius p. A good species, though 
apparently very rare; for I had the pleasure of adding it to the 
Cumingian collection. 

279. Trochus pellis-serpentis=Tegula p. 

280. Trochus reticulatus=Omphalius viridulus, M. 292. This 
is the common Trochid of the Panama region, as is ligulatus of the 

281. Turbo buschii= Uvanilla inermis, M. 287. This shell ap- 
pears to replace U. olivacea in the southern fauna. Besides the dif- 
ferences indicated in Maz. Cat. p. 229, the operculum is quite 

282. ? Turbo phasianeila=Collonia ph.: not (Melaraphe) pha- 
sianella, Phil. 

283. Turbo rutilus. The unique type is in miserable condition, 
to which the ‘‘ bright red with pale streaks”? is owing. The shell 
may possibly have been originally a Pomaulax undosus, which is 
truly a Lower Californian species. It appears, however, to be a 
favourite with sailors, as specimens are continually appearing, not 
only high and low on the West’ Coast, but also from the Pacific 
Islands. The specimens brought by Comm. Wilkes’s U.S. Expl. Exp. 
were obtained in N. S. Wales! Prof. Adams’s fragments were pro- 
bably due to ballast. 

234. Turbo saxosus=Callopoma saxosum. This replaces the C. 
fiuctnosum of the Gulf, M. 282, and the C. tessellatum of Lower 
California. The ‘var. depressum”’ of P. Z. S., 1855, I believe to 
be really a Senectus from the Pacific Islands. 

285. Scalaria hexagona, C. B. Ad.: non Sby., M. 564. The 
Professor’s shell is (I think) one of the species I described in P. ZS. 
from Mr. Bridges’s collection; but the distinctions in this genus are 
too critical to decide without comparison of types. ‘Llis shell is 
broad; whorls very separate; varices long and sharp; spirally 
finely striated. 

286. Scalaria obtusa, C. B. Ad.; ?non Sby. This also appeared 
to me one of Mr. Bridges’s species. It is a very pretty shell, with 
close, sharp, coronated varices. 

287. Scalaria, sp. ind. a. Like the next, but larger, and with 
spiral striae between the extremely crowded, sharp varices. 

288. Scalaria, sp.ind. 6. Of the Clathratula type, without spiral 

289. Scalaria, sp. ind. e, is probably the young of Cirsotrema 
funiculatum, M. 569, which, with its congeners, may be removed to 

290. Eulima iota. This shell, which is a Letostraca (not ‘? Sty- 
lifer’’), is probably distinct trom the Mazatlan form, M. 595, which 
snould stand as L. retexta. 


i Pp BETS 




291. Eulima recta. The type is a very good species of Leio- 
straca ; but I doubt its identity with the Cumingian specimen, with 
which the Mazatlan shell, M. 550, was compared. It most resembles 
the L. linearis, M. 554, with which it agrees in divergeuce and 
general shape ; but that is very much smaller, with the upper whorls 
more tumid. In the Professor's type of Z. recta, I searched in vain 
for traces of the “two brown spots.” They were probably thrown 
by defective light. The ‘‘ two opaque spiral bands ”’ are simply the 
effect of the suture, and the previous whorl showing through. For 
the Mazatlan shell, M. 550, I propose the name of L. involuta. 

292. Eulima solitaria. This also is a Letostraca, not “? Sty- 
lifer,’ and accords exactly with the Letostraca, sp. ind. a, M. 552, 
but not with the supposed L. solitaria, M. 551. The latter agrees 
in shape with the unique Panama shell, whorl for whorl; but its 
base and labrum are much more produced anteriorly. For this rea- 
son, it may be known as L. producta. 

293. Pyramidella, sp. ind. This is probably the Odeliscus de- 
scribed in Maz. Cat. no. 486. 

294. Pyramidella conica = Obeliscus conicus, C. B. Ad., not 
M. 486. 

295. Natica chemnitzii= N. maroccana, M. 570. The Professor 
first labelled these shells ‘‘ NV. ? maroccana, Chem.,’’ but crossed it off 
in pencil. Another tray appeared (without number) labelled ‘? wi7- 
fasciata, Lam.” ‘They all belong to the large West Coast form of 
maroceana. [N.B. The shells described in P. Z. 8. as ‘var. cali- 
Jfornica,” on the authority of the late Mr. Nuttall, are (with others 
from the same source) undoubtedly from the Sandwich Islands. 
The Pacific specimens (of which I have examined many thousands, 
brought by Comm. Wilkes’s E. E.) present a very different type froin 
ions of the west coasts of Africa and America; but are regarded 
by Mr. Cuming as only a local variety. ] 

296. Natica ?lurida. These shells are simply a pale variety of 
N. maroceana. 

297. Natica otis, C. B. Ad. (not Brod. & Sby.). These shells 
appear to be the young of Polinices ‘‘ salangonensis,” P. 298 

298. Natica ? salangonensis. I had no opportunity of comparing 
this Polinices with the species of Récluz. 

299. Natica souleyetiana. The shells closely resemble N. ma- 
roccana, but with a larger umbilicus. 

300. Natica ? virginea, C. B. Ad. (not Reécl.) = Polinices uber, 
M. 576 

301. Natica, sp. ind. a. There is no ticket answering to this 
number, which was probably intended for the N. maroccana, var. 

302. Natica, sp. ind. 6. The shells are marked e, and are the 
young of Polinices uber, P. 300, M. 576. 

13 193 


303. Natres, sp. ind. ec. The shell is marked f, and is probably 
=N. haneti 

304. Nerita scabricosta=M. 326. After examining a multitude 
of specimens from different parts of the coast, I have not the slightest 
doubt of the identity of the forms called ornata and desiayesit. 

305. Nerita, sp. ind. a=N. bernhardi, M. 327. 

306. Neritina guayaquilensis. Stet.+ N. intermedia, Sby. 

307. Neritina picta=M. 329. 

308-316. Stent. The shells described as “ duricula”’ belong to 

317. Truncatella bairdiana. <A good species. 

318. ?? Truncatella dubiosa. This belongs to Hydrobia or some 
similar Rissoid. 

319. Bulla (Tornatina) infrequens=Tornatina i., M. 222. 

320. Bulla (Cylichna) luticola=Cylichna l., M. 221. The Ma- 
zatlan shell is much more constricted than most of Prof. Adams’s 

321. Bulla punctulata=B. adamsi, M. 224. The B. punctata, 
A. Ad.=B. punctulata, A. Ad., but is not the B. punctulata, 
C. B. Ad.=B. puncticulata, C. B. Ad., MS. on ticket. 

322. Bulla, sp. ind.=Tornatina carinata, M. 223. 

323. Vermetus ? glomeratus, C. B. Ad. (not Bivonia glomerata, 
Lam.)=V. eburneus, M. 354. The shells sometimes assume a ru- 
fous tint in the later whorls, in which state (if the Turritelloid apex 
be concealed) it is liable to be confounded with Aletes centiquadrus. 
Some of the Professor’s shells belong to the latter species. 

324. Vermetus panamensis, C. B. Ad. (? Rouss.)= Aletes centi- 
quadrus, M. 352. 

325. Stomatella inflata is a Lamellaria with broken lip and very 
much curved columella: v. M. 577. [A Sigaretus, with somewhat 
sharper columella than the ordinary W. Indian form, was found 
among the Professor’s duplicate Panama shells; but as it does not 
occur either in the catalogue or the collection, it was probably dropped 
in from the Jamaica series. | 

326. Hipponyx, sp. ind. Of the Professor’s ‘‘two small speci- 
mens’ marked “ swbrufa, jyun.,” one is H. grayanus, jun., M. 350. 
The other may be the same, but is probably the young of H. bar- 
batus. Neither are sufficiently perfect to determine with confidence. 

327. Hipponyx tbarbata. Part of these specimens belong to H. 
barbatus, M. 349; part to H. grayanus; part are too much worn 
to determine ; and one is a valve of Discina cumingit. 

328. Hipponyx panamensis= H. antiquatus, M. 347. The species 
is very widely diffused, and varies greatly in each locality. 

329. Hipponyx radiata= H. grayanus, M. 350. The collection 



also contains a tray labelled “‘ Panama: C. B. Ad. don.,” in which 
are Hipponyx serratus, M. 346, H. barbatus, and Gadinia pentag:- 
niostoma, M. 270. This last name should be dropped, except as a 
variety of G. stellata, Sby., which is the normal state: v. B. A. Rep. 
1857, pl. 7. f. 3, a-g. 

330. Calyptrea aberrans. The Professor candidly allows that 
“‘in texture this shell much resembles a valve of an Anomia,”’ which 
it undoubtedly is, the supposed ‘probably imperfect cup ”’ bemg 
the ligamental pit. The large muscular scar is very clearly de- 
veloped ; but the others are faint, as is customary in young shells, 
and might stand for either 4nomia or Placunanomia. The valve is 
thin and glossy inside. The outside is smooth, excepting the lines 
of growth, and is encrusted with beautiful zoophytes. A tiny Ser- 
pula, which has coiled itself close to the umbo, carries out the idea 
of a Calyptreeid spiral apex ; but a careful microscopic examination 
displayed the true Anomoid nucleus, at a little distance from the 
margin, as is common in the Mazatlan specimens of 4. lampe, 

M. 219. 

331. Calyptrea (Syphopatella) aspersa=Galerus conicus, very 
worn and young, with the lamina broken away. One of the speci- 
mens may perhaps be mamillaris. 

332. Calyptrea cepacea=M. 345. 

333. Calyptrea conica. These are dead specimens, of which a 
few may be the true Galerus conicus, M. 332. But most of them 
belong to the brown-tinted variety of (the Professor’s G. regularis=) 
mamillaris: v. no. 340. 

334. Calyptrea dentata= Crucibulum imbricatum, M. 343. 
335. Calyptrea hispida=Crucibulum spinosum, M. 344. 

336. Calyptrea imbricata. The two specimens are too much 
worn to affiliate with confidence, the cups being broken out. ‘The 
outside is ribbed, with arrow-headed strize between the ribs) They 
probably = Crucibulum i., var. 

337. Calyptrea maculata=Crucibulum spinosum, M. 344. See 
the attempt to unravel the confusion in the synonymy of this family 
in Maz. Cat. pp. 264-295. Three specimens marked by the Pro- 
fessor ‘‘ C. maculata, var.,”’ are young, dead radiata, no. 339. 

338. Calyptrea planulata. This unique shell is simply a young, 
flat C. cepacea, with the cup prominent, and the outside sculpture 
faintly developed, from living in a hollow place. The strize are not 
‘obsolete around the apex.” 

339. Calyptrea radiata=Crucibulum r. This rare and beautiful 
Species is quite distinct, even in the early stages, from all varieties 
of C. spinosum. 

340. Calyptrea (Syphopatella) regularis=Galerus mamillaris, 
M. 333. 

341. Calyptrea umbrella=Cructhulum u. (=C. rudis, Brod.). 


342. Calyptrea ?unguis, C. B. Ad.=Crucibulum spinosum, yun, 
(not Galerus unguis, Brod.). 

343. Crepidula cerithiicola. Most of the specimens are the young 
of C. onyx, M. 340; but a few are of C. incurva, M. 339. 

344. Crepidula echinus=C. aculeata, M. 334. 
345, Crepidula excavata, M. 337. 
346. Crepidula ? hepatica=C. onyx, M. 340. 

347. Crepidula incurva, M. 339. A very interesting series of 
specimens ; of which two or three are probably the twdsted form of 
C'. onyx. One tray contains specimens adhering to other shells. 
One, fixed diagonally on a Calliostoma, takes exactly the arrow- 
headed sculpture of the var. Cal. imbricata, Brod. Another, grown 
diagonally on Pisania gemmata, has the general aspect of a Chiton. 
One, fixed on the back of its neighbour which has grown on a Cal- 
liostoma, has the granular interruptions of the ribs transmitted 
through the first specimen. The same is true of one which has 
grown on another which was planted on a Pisania. One specimen, 
which had established itself on a Calliostoma, and began with normal 
ribs, is losing these at the margin, adopting the sculpture of the 
Trochid. An extremely twisted specimen in the tray of separate 
shells has a bifid deck. A young one had edged itself into the apical 
part of the deck, as into a maternal pouch ; so the old one made a 
fresh deck over it. 

348. Crepidula lessonii. Most of the specimens are of C. nivea, 
var., M. 341. Two shells, which have the apex perfect, display the 
characteristic nuclear riblets. One dark-coloured specimen may be 
a hybrid, and another (though too much worn for confident aftilia- 
tion) appears to be C. unguiformis. Among the duplicates, all the 
specimens which were perfect at the apex presented the niveoid 
nucleus, though white ; but generally the riblets were more or less 
worn off, 

349. Crepidula squama. These are the flat form (mostly dead 
and worn) of C. nivea, M. 341. Some of them pass into lessonii. 
Some are highly coloured, and may be the young of C. onyx; one 
even of C. incurva. One of the young shells in phial appears to be 
C. onyx ; but whenever the apex is perfect, it presents the typical 
riblets : v. Maz. Cat. in loco. 

350. Crepidula unguiformis. The apex being hidden in dead 
shells, which I was not at liberty to break away, I could only exa- 
mine one specimen, which appeared to be a CO. nivea, var., as sup- 
posed in Maz. Cat. p. 285. Of the loose specimens, scarcely any 
are sufficiently perfect at the apex to speak with confidence. Most 
of them, however, have the characteristic painting of the variety 
squama; and all may belong to the common species (C. nivea), ex- 
cept one which is a true C. unguiformis, M. 342, on the back of 
another shell, and a few which are probably C. onya, var. Ot the 
d»plicates, which I was at liberty to extract from the dead shells, 



some are undoubtedly C. nivea; others truly O. unguiformis ; and 
others probably C. nivea, but with the riblets worn away by the 
. crabs. 

351. Crepidula nivea, M. 341. The specimens are small and 
poor; mostly rough, of the variety sfriolata passing into lessonii. 
Wherever the apex is perfect, it presents the characteristic riblets, 
but is generally white, not brown as in most of the finely grown 
Mazatlan shells. 

352. Crepidula osculans. This is a perfect and extremely beau- 
tiful specimen of Seutellina navicelloides, M. 269. The Professor 
did not observe the non-spiral patelloid apex, and regarded the 
“navicelloid”’ columellaas an extremely narrow deck. To the diag- 
nosis in the Maz. Cat. may now be added “ apice obtuso, sublavi ; 
vertice haud spirali, viv conspicuo.”’ 

353. Crepidula rostrata=C. adunca, M. 338, ?non Sby. The 
examination of a large series of specimens from the temperate fauna 
has led me unexpectedly to confirm Mr. Reeve’s opinion that they 
are distinct. The northern shell is C. adunca, Sby. (= Garnotia 
[Gray] solida, Hds.=C. rostriformis, Gld.) ; and the tropical shell 
must take the prior name, C. uncata, Mke. (=C. rostrata, C. B. Ad., 
Rve.=C. adunca, Maz. Cat., non Sby.). 

354. Fissurella equalis= Vissurellidea e@. 

355. Fissurella alta=Glyphis alta, M. 280. 

356. Fissurella macrotrema. Stet. 

357. Fissurella microtrema. These are dead specimens, of which 
some are [’. rugosa, var., M. 273. 

358. Fissurella mus=Glyphis inequalis, var., M. 279. These 
shells are intermediate between the typical form and pica. 

359, 360. Stent. 

361. Fissurella virescens. tis doubtful whether any of the spe- 
cimens are of the true virescens, M. 271, as they run into nigro- 
punctata by insensible gradations. Perhaps both species may prove 

362. Siphonaria characteristica=S. gigas, var. 

363, 364, 365. Stent. 

366. Siphonaria pica. These are young dead limpets (not 
Siphonarie ). 

367. Lottia ? patina, C. B. Ad. (non Esch.). These shells differ 
from Acma@a mesoleuca, M. 263, in being black instead of green, and 
are prettily striped. 

368, 369, 370. Lottia, sp.ind. There may be two or even more 
species of Acmea, but it is not impossible that there is only one 
among the professor’s Lotti, some of the specimens being the 
young of ? Patella, no. 371. 197 


371. ? Patella, sp. ind. This has the general appearance of P. 
rulyata, but may be an Aemea, 

372. Chiton clathratus. (Genus indet.) 

373. Chiton dispar, C. B. Ad.; not Lophyrus dispar, Sby. I 
doubt whether any of the Professor’s specimens belong to Sowerby’s 
species, which is black mixed with grey ; area-sculpture very faint ; 
and sides imbricated, not rugulose. Among the duplicates were two 
(if not three) species: —the principal one with side-sculpture in lobated 
knobs, which may be named Lophyrus adamsii; a ?variety with 
simple knobs; and a well-marked species without distinct side areas, 
which may be called Lophyrus tenuisculptus. 

374. Chiton Tluridus. Probably correct. 
375. Chiton pulchellus= Callochiton p.+C. elenensis. 
376. Chiton stokesii=Lophyrus s. 

377. Anomia lampe, C. B. Ad. It is doubtful whether this is 
identical with the northern species, M. 219. 

378. Anomia tenuis. This is probably the young of the last 
species, and may give it a name, if new. It is doubtful how the 
diagnosis of the scars was made out; as they were not visible in © 
either of the specimens retained, being encrusted with dead animal 
matter. They were not distinct even after its removal. 

379. Anomia, sp. ind. a. Probably the same species as the two 
last, although far too dead, worn, and young to decide. See notes 
on the variations of 4. lampe, Maz. Cat. p. 168. 

380. Ostrea, sp. ind. a. The hinge notches of the upper valve 
fit between corresponding teeth in the lower. Inside rather flesh- 
coloured ; white, round margin. Scar kidney-shaped, dark in one 
valve, light in the other. A young valve is white, and as pearly as 
O. iridescens, M. 211. The species is best known by its tendency 
to make a very broad limb in the exterior coloured part, spreading 
out into palmations. A very young specimen, though covered above 
with Membranipore, shows the characteristic corrugations through. 
It may stand provisionally as O. panamensis. 

381. Ostrea, sp. ind. 6. This is probably a variety of O. pana- 
mensis, but more coarsely grown, so that there is a smaller limb, 
without palmations. Wherever the sculpture appears, there are evi- 
dent traces of the peculiar corrugations. The inside has the same 
characters, both of hinge, colour, iridescence, and scar. 

382. Ostrea, sp. ind. c. Rather square hinge, without plications ; 
one shell with an umbonal cavity. Pearly white. One specimen is 
tinted on the scar, which may become coloured in the adult. It is 
by no means “ pentangular,” and is more probably =O. rufa, Gld., 
than O. columbiensis, M. 213. 

383. Ostrea, sp.ind.d. The shells are broader than the Mazatlan 
specimens of O. virginica, M. 212, probably from not growing on 
twigs. The younger shells are very like O. edulis ; the older ones 



have hollow umbos. One long shell, first marked e, but altered to /, 
is the adult form; several of the younger shells are doubtful. 

384. Ostrea, sp.ind. e.=Ostrea, M.215. Being a good species, 
I propose the name of O. amara. The Professor’s ‘small var.”’ is 
not plicated, and appears to belong to O. conchaphila, M. 214. 
[N.B. Additional specimens confirm me in tne belief that O. pal- 
mula, M. 214 6, is a distinct species. | 

385. Spondylus lamarckii, C..B. Ad.=S. calcifer, M. 208. 

386. Spondylus, sp. ind. a= Plicatula penicillata, M. 210. 

387. Pecten inca=P. ventricosus, Sby., as in errata. 

388. Pecten tumbezensis=P. aspersus, Sby., Hanl. (? Lam.). 

389. Lima angulata. Shells inflated, not gaping. 

390. Lima pacifica (=L. arcuata, Sby., Haul.). Young shells, 
species uncertain. 

391. Avicula ?margaritifera= Margaritiphora fimbriata, Dkr., 
M. 204=M. mazatlanica, Hanl.=M. barbata, Kve. 

392. Avicula sterna, M. 203. A. libella, Rve., appears to me 
the young of this species. 

393. Perna, sp. ind. a=Isognomon chemnitziana, M. 205. 

394. Perna, sp. ind. b=TI. chemnitziana, var. Rather more 
finely grown, and with less colour, but certainly the same species. 
The Professor's Jamaica specimens are labelled ‘‘ d¢color, Ad.” 

395. Pinna maura, M. 200. 

396. I‘nna tuberculosa. Thee of the specimens appear to me 
=P. maura, jun. The other may be the same, but is worn nearly 

397. Mytilus, sp. ind. a. Resembles the young of Modiola bra- 
siliensis, but with a few hinge-teeth, as in M. edulis. 

398. Lithodomus, sp. ind. a. Most of these specimens are of 
Lithophagus aristatus, M. 176; one (perhaps two) are L. attenua- 
tus, M. 173 (which is found from Lower California to Chili) ; and 
one appears to be L. plumula, M. 175; but they are too young to 
decide with confidence. 

399. Modiola? semifusca. These specimens all belong to the M. 
brasiliensis, M. 171, but are much more like the ordinary Brazilian 
specimens than are those from Mazatlan. As compared with the 
latter, the Panama shells are more rounded, with stronger posterior 
grooving, and with the angular ridge less marked. A similar shell, 
undoubtedly from New Zealand, is considered by Mr. Cuming con- 

400-404. Modiola, sp. ind. a, 6, c, d, e. I could find no a or e 
in the collection; but there were two trays marked f. Tray 6= 3. 
ecpax, M.170. e contains several specimens of Mytilus multiformis, 
M. 168, strongly ribbed variety, perhaps intended for 6, uo. 401. 



d contains parts of six specimens, and perhaps should be a, no. 400. 
They appear to be a variety of Lithophagus cinnamomeus, M. 177, 
but with broken shells, &c., agglutinized on the posterior side. f(1) 
contains four specimens of MM. multiformis, the semigreenish variety 
(Maz. Cat. p. 119), and are probably intended fore. f (2) contains 
two specimens of the same variety of M. multiformis, in the burrow 
of a Lithophagus, and may stand for d or e. 

405. Chama buddiana= C. (? frondosa, var.) fornicata, M. 121, b. 
Additional specimens confirm me in regarding this species as distinct 
from all varieties of frondosa. The Professor’s shells not being very 
characteristic, the diagnoses do not exactly accord. The shell stands 
as C. buddiana. 

406. Chama? corrugata. The large valve appears a dead reversed 
C’. (frondosa) mexicana, M. 121, with the teeth perforated by Li- 
thophagi. The other may be corrugata, very dead, of sienna-tint, 
very pointed dorsally. 

407. Chamaechinata. These appear to me to be the young, partly 
of C. buddiana, but principally of C. mexicana, 

408. Nucula elenensis= Leda e., M. 199. 

409. Nucula exigua, M. 198. 

410. Nucula polita=Leda p. With semidiagonal lines. 

411. Pectunculus assimilis+ P. inequalis, M. 196. 

412. Pectunculus ?maculatus. Stet. 

413. Area alternata=Barbatia a., M. 188. 

414. Arca ?aviculoides appears.a young Scapharca, 

415. Arca emarginata=Scapharca e., M. 187. 

416. Arca gradata= Barbatia g., M. 194. 

417. Arca grandis, M. 180. 

418. Arca mutabilis= Byssoarca m., M. 190. 

419. Area (Byssoarca) pholadiformis. 'This is simply an elon- 
gated form of Barbatia gradata, probably from growing in the hole 
ot a Lithophagus. The umbos are ‘ flattened”’ by erosion; teeth 
not “obsolete” under the glass; “ligament concealed ”’ simply by 
the compressed and elongated growth. 

420. Arca reeviana= Barbatia r. 

421. Area reversa=Noetia r., M. 185. 

422. Arca similis. This is scarcely a variety of 4. tuberculosa, 
WL. 184. The specimens are dead and oiled, witn most of the epi- 
dermis abraded. 

423. Arca solida= Barbatia s., M. 195. 

424. Arca (Byssoarca) tobagensis= Barbatia illota, M. 193. 

425, Arca tuberculosa, M. 184. 

426. drca, sp. ind. a. These little shells approach the Noefia 


type. Ribs fine, tuberculous, coarse on the angular side. Ligameut 
very narrow, truncated. 

427. Cardita affinis. (Lazaria.) 

428. Cardita laticostata=Venericardia I. 

429. Cardita radiata. (Lazaria.) 

430. Cardium graniferum, M. 134. 

431. Cardium obovale= Hemicardia o. 

432. Cardium planicostatum, C. B. Ad., not Sby. This looks like 

a dead ballast-valve of Hemicardia media; but it may be H. bian- 

433. Cardium procerum, M. 125. 
434, Cardium senticosum, M. 126. 
435. Venus ?amathusia= Anomalocardia subimbricata, M. 113. 

436. Venus discors= Tapes gratus, Say, M. 110. The Professor’s 
specimens of this species and 7. Aistrionicus are somewhat inter- 

437. Venus gnidia, M.101. Dead specimens ; of which one may 
possibly be Chione amathusia, M. 102. 

438. Venus multicostata. Closely resembling the West Indian 

439. Venus pectunculoides=Tapes histrionicus, M. 109. 
440. Venus subrugosa=Anomalocardia s., M. 112. 

441. Venus, sp.ind. a. A small species with concentric lamine, 
armed with one posterior row of blunt spines. Interstices with mi- 
nute concentric striz. 

442. Venus, sp. ind. b=Chione crenifera, M. 105=P. sugillata, 
Rve. C. I. no. 43. 

443. Cythereaaffinis. Probably=Callista concinna, var., M.99. 
444. Cytherea aurantiaca= Callista aurantia, M. 92. 
445. Cytherea consanguinea=Callista ec. Messrs. H. and A. 

Adams have not made a subgenus to include this group of thin, in- 
flated, almost colourless species. 

446. Cytherea radiata=Trigona r., M. 83. 

447. Cytherea squalida=Callista chionea, M. 93. 
448. Artemis dunkeri= Dosinia d., M. 90. 

449. Artemis saccata=Cyclina subquadrata, M. 91. 
450. Gouldia pacifica, M. 116. 

451. Cyrena maritima. Stet. The collection also contains two 
tubes, containing a very young ‘‘? Cyclas”’ and another “ Cyrena, 
jun.,”” marked “ Panama, C. B. Ad.” 

452. Lucina tellinoides=Felania t. Differs from F. sericata, 



M,. 152, in having a yellow, not silky, epidermis. The specimens 
vary considerably in thickness. The genus scarcely differs from 

453. Capsa altior=Iphigenia a., M. 69. 
454. Donax assimilis, M. 74. 

455. Dona gracilis. Stet. 

456. Donax navicula, M. 77. 

457. Donaw rostratus. This single valve proves to be the true 
D. carinatus, M.71, and not the shell which I called D. culminatus, 
M. 72 (=carinatus, var.. Hanl. in Mus. Cum.), which I subse- 
auently afiihated to the supposed resfretus, Maz, Cat, p. 548, on the 
authority of Dr. Gould’s specimen. We were probably both misled 
by the “ very sharp angle,” which (as compar ed with the other form) 
I should eall rounded, and the “concave” surface, which I should 
translate into flat. The names have been altered in the Cumingian 
collection since the Mazatlan shells were identified ; but Mr. Hanley 
informs me that they are now correct ; that the D. culminatus, M. 
72, is his own orginal carinatus; and that the D, carinatus, M.71 
(olim Mus. Cum.), which is certainly D. restratus, P. 457, must 
stand under Prof. Adams’s name. 

458. Tellina aurora. Stet. 

459. Tellina cognata, C. B. Ad.=Psammobia casta, Rve., teste 
Cuming. The sculpture consists of semidiagonal strive passing over 
the lines of growth. In other specimens examined from Panama 
taese are sometimes crowded, sometimes distant, occasionally flex- 
uous, sometimes almost evanescent. 

460. Tellina columbiensis. (Peronea.) 

461. Tellina concinna=Macoma ec. The “slight tinge of pink” 
T could not discover. 

462. Tellina erystallina=Tellidora ec. 

463. Tellina cumingtt, M. 55. 

464. Tellina dombeyi=Macoma d., M. 50. 

465. Tellina felix, M. 51. (dagulus.) 

466. Tellina laceridens. (Peroneoderma.) 

467. Tellina prora. (Peroneoderma.) 

468. Tellina puella. Not unlike 7. felix, and distinct from M. 59. 

469. Tellina rubescens. (Peroneoderma.) 

470. Tellina siliqua. The two odd valves belong probably to a 
Muceoma, in shape resembling Thracta phaseolina, 

AT1. Tellina simulans=T. (Peroneoderm2) punicea, M. 34. The 
species was described, for geographical reasons, from a young, pale, 
and undeveloped valve. On comparing it with the Professor's own 

West Indisn specimens, I could detect no difference. 


472. Tellina sincera=Strigilla 8. 

473. Vellina vicina=Heterodonax vicinus. The shells are la- 
belled 7’. versicolor by the Professor. They are larger than the ge- 
neral run of West Indian specimens; but the form is probably a 
local variety of the old Meterodonax bimaculatus. 

474. Tellina, sp. ind. a. The doubt concerning concave” and 
* convex” probably arises from an error in description, 

475. Tellina, sp.ind. 6. Looks exactly like the young of No, 474, 
but with lateral teeth. 

476. Tellina, sp. ind. ¢. Dead valves of T. feliz, No. 465. 

477. Petricola cognata. More characteristic specimens from the 
same coast are affiliated by Mr. Cuming to P. pholadiformis, from 
which this would probably not have been separated had it appeared 
on the Atlantic coast. 

478. Saxicava ttenuis. The Panama shell is more like Petricola 
than Saxicava, having two teeth in each valve, one of which is bifid. 
Sowerby’s species is called by Messrs. H. & A. Adams “ Saxicava 
tenuis” (ii. p. 349) and “ Petricola tenuis” (it. p.441). Shell with 
very fine radiating strive, crossed by irregular strive of growth, 

479. Cumingia coarctata=C. lamellosa, var., M. 42. 
480. Cumingia trigonularis, M. 43. 

481. Cumingia, sp. ind. a=C. trigonularis, No. 480. 
482. Cumingia, sp. ind. b=C. var. coarctata, No. 479. 

483. Cumingia, sp. ind. c=M. 45. This appears a distinct spe- 
cies, and may be quoted as C. adamsi, in remembrance of the labours 

of Messrs. H., A. and C. B. Adams. 

484. Cumingia, sp. ind. d= Maz. Cat. tablet 107, p. 31; well 
rounded, with close striz. Probably distinct. 

485. Amphidesma bicolor= Semele tvenusta, M.41 (non A. Ad.). 
The “species” in this genus are often separated by very variable 

486. Amphidesma ‘ellipticum= Semele e. 

487. Amphidesma proximum. The type is not quite so elliptical 
as the last species; but as this is a very variable character (v. Maz. 
Cat. p. 25), I should regard it as the same. It is not the Semele 
proxima, M. 40 (=S. flavescens, v. Maz. Cat. p. 548). 

488. Amphidesma pulchrum= Semele p. 

489. Amphidesma striosum= Semele 8. 1 should describe the 
shell as smooth, with very fine diagonal stri« crossing the lines of 
growth. It has the general aspect of S. pulchra. ‘The teeth in one 
valve are long and sharp. 

490. Amphidesma tortuosum=Semele t. Teeth short and faint. 
491. Amphidesma ventricosum=Semelev. The “zones” are very 



“ill-defined.” Teeth scarcely visible. It looks outside like a Gead 
valve of Macoma solidula. 

492. Crassatella gibbosa. Also found at Cape St. Lucas. 
493. Mulinia donaciformis=M. angulata, M. 80. 
494. Mulinia ventricosa= Mactrella exoleta, M. 78. 

495. Lutraria elegans= Harvella elegans; ascribed by Messrs. 
H. & A. Adams to Florida (ii. p. 378), trom which I have never 
seen it. It isa rare, but (under different names) somewhat widely 
diffused west-tropical shell. Its “analogue” from Florida and Ca- 
rolina is Raéta canaliculata, 

496. Mactra velata=Standella v. Vide M. 79. The ‘small 
variety”’ is conspecific. 

497. Anatina alta. This valve of Periploma may prove identical 
with one of the four Gulf species. The spoon is supported under- 
neath by a linear plate. 

498. Pandora cornuta. It is singular that neither Prof. Adams 
nor Dr. Gould observed that the peculiar characters of this species 
are due to a fracture, producing a beak and sinus which are not seen 
on the limes of growth. The sentences about the “‘rostriform pro- 
jection,” the ‘‘sinus,”’ and the ‘ prominent angle,’’ should therefore 
be erased from the diagnosis. ‘The hinge-teeth consist of a long 
sharp tooth, very pointed, in one valve, fitting against a less prominent 
one in the other; a slight hgamental tooth in the first valve only ; 
and a very long, sharp, clavicular tooth in each valve, running near 
the posterior margin, against the inside umbonal portion of which 
the ligament is attached. Should it prove identical with P. clavicu- 
lata, the earliest name (as being given in error) may advantageously 
be dropped. It is surprising that Messrs. H. & A. Adams have not 
divided the old Lamarckian genus even into subgenera. 

499. Potamomya equalis. 500. P. inflata. 501. P. trigonalis. 
These three forms of Azara differ in outline, but not more than do 
some other species of Corbulids and such shells as Trigona radiata. 
The teeth, pallial lines, and general characters are the same in each. 
The first two I should consider certainly identical ; and a large series 
of specimens would probably graduate to the third. 

502. Corbula bicarinata, M. 30. 
503. Corbula biradiata, M. 31. 
504. Corbula obesa. Stet. 

505. Corbula ovulata, M. 33. 

506. Corbula rubra. A young orange-tinted specimen of C. di- 
radiata, No. 503. The “broad flexure’’ is an accidental growth, 
not shown in the lines of growth of an earlier stage. 

507. Corbula tenuis. Stet. 

508. Corbula, sp. ind. a. A very small angular valve, with sharp 
concentric ridges. It may belong to C. pustulosa, M. 32. 


a a a 



509. Corbula, sp. ind. 6. Dead valves of C. biradiata, No. 503. 
To the same species may be referred C. polychroma. We were mis- 
led by the different appearance of the dead shell, and by the locality- 
mark in Col. Jewett’s collection. His specimens were probably from 
Panama or Acapulco. 

510. Solecurtus affinis, M. 37. It is probable that this species 
is identical with S. (’ Novaculina) caribbeus. The Ariquibo speci- 
mens of the latter in Mus. Amherst are more like the Mazatlan shells 
than those are to the Panama type. Shells from Cape Palmas were 
affiliated to the Caribbzean species by Mr. Cuming. 

511. Solen rudis=Ensatella r. This interesting form passes 
towards Pharella. It is called ‘‘ Solena cbliqua, Spengl., var.” in 
Mus. Cuming. 

512. Pholas crucigera. With the general aspect of Barnea candida. 

513. Pholas tubifera= Pholadidea t. Of the melanura type, with 
a solid tube fitting on to the ends of the cups. 

514. Pholas xylophaga. Of the Martesia type, without cups. 
Dorsal and ventral plates long; umbonal plates moderate; wave of 
the adolescent gape rather suddenly arched. 

515. Pholas , sp. ind. a. Col. Jewett’s specimens of the 
same shell are named /aqueata by Mr. Cuming. It is of the non- 
‘waved, concameroid type; without radiating sculpture; concentric 
lamellee beautifully frilled. 

516. Pholas, sp. ind. 6. So like P. dactylus that it might be 
taken for a worn valve from ballast. The sculpture-ridges are, how- 
ever, further apart ; hinge-chambers larger and more numerous, with 
a little twisted lamina beyond; gape less conspicuous. 

517. Orbicula cumingii= Discina c., M. 14. 

The shells unfortunately are all loose, in trays, with the autograph 
names on tickets. Prof. Adams’s West Indian collections are in the 
same condition; and both series are arranged together, in zoological 
order, in the midst of the general collection. There is no evidence, 
however, that they have been handled since the Professor left them, 
none of the leading conchological writers in the New World having 
thought it needful to go out of their way to complete a review of the 
Professor’s work. Amherst is situated on a branch railway, and is 
within an easy walk of Northampton, Mount Holyoak, and the deli- 
cious scenery of the Connecticut River. In the College buildings 
are also deposited the most complete series of the Fossil Footprints 
of the Connecticut River, and the mineralogicat collection (including 
the meteorolites) belonging to Prot. Shepherd.

Quoted by Mr. Reeve, under Dione pannosa, as “ D. puella, 
Cpr.”; but the name was only given in MS. in accordance with 
Mr. Caming’s assertion that it was distinct. The colourless sub- 
trigonal shells were regarded by Mr. Reeve as a separate species ; 
but he did not allude to them in his monograph.

By Purure P. Carrenter, B..\., Pa.D. 

IT is remarkable that, notwithstanding the zeal with which most of 
the old genera have been divided, to meet the wants of modern mala- 
cology, the genus Pandora, Lam., has been left untouched by Dr, 
Gray, Messrs. Adams, and their follower, Chenu, Yet the species 
known to the elder Sowerby present three distinct types of hinge, 
which were well figured by him in his ‘ Conchological Illustrations.’ 
Specimens and even species of Pandora (except of the well-known 
N. Atlantic forms) being very rarely seen in collections, it is pre- 
sumed that naturalists have had but few opportunities of studying 
them. Mr. Cuming having most kindly allowed me to examine the 
hinge of all the species in his collection, it has appeared desirable to 
propose two new genera, and also to group part of the typical species 
under a subgenus. 

It was at one time thought that the presence of an ossicle in the 
cartilage was a family mark of dnatinide, to which Myadora from 
Pandoride, and Tellimya from Kelliade, were consequently removed. 
One of the new genera of Pandorids, however, possesses a well-deve- 
loped ossicle; and a small one is seen even in some species of the 
normal genus. 

The most highly organized structure in the family is found in the 
North American genus Clidiophora, which has both clavicle* and 
ossicle ; the next is the East-Indian group Celodon, which wants 
both clavicle and ossicle, but possesses a tent-shaped dentition in the 
left valve. The simplest form is the well-known Pandora, which 
has neither clavicle, tent, nor ossicle ; but in the subgenus Kenner/ia 
the ossicle is present. The genus Myodora is quite distinct, but 
connected with Pandora through Kennerlia. 

Genus CLipIopHoRAT. 

Testa Pandoriformas, ventraliter expansa; valva dextra tridentata, 
dente postico elongato ; valva sinistra sepius bidentata, dente 
antico simplict ; cartilagine ossiculo firmata ; sinu pallii nullo. 

1. Type, CuipiopHORA CLAvicuLata, Cpr. (Pandora cl.) P.Z.S. 
1855, p. 228. 

* The word “ clavicle” is used (in default of a better) to denote a linear dental 
process running into the body of the shell, often serving as a support to the car- 
dinal plate, as in 4natina and some species of Placunonia.

In the dentition of the right valve this genus resembles Ca/odon, 
except that the posterior lamina is greatly developed, resembling a 
clavicle. The left valve wants the central tooth and chamber of that 
genus. ‘This structural deficiency, however, is compensated by the 
development of an ossicle in the long cartilage. As far as is known, 
all the species are from North and Central America, and are swollen

This species is known from C. claviculata by the much greater 
posterior curvature of the beaks, and anteriorly by the beautiful tri- 
angular wing-like serrations: of the margin, in which it resembles 
Tellidora burneti. The inside has elegant rays from the umbo te 
the dotted pallial line.

It is probable that these are simply varietal forms of the well-known 
New England species. Say’s name and Sowerby’s excellent figure 
prove that the peculiar hinge of the genus was observed by both 
authors. Mr. Cuming gives “ Philippines”’ as the habitat of his 
specimens of C. nasuta, probably inerror. Mr. Hanley quotes it as a 
synonym of C. trilineata. An examination of a large series from Staten 
Island proves that the outline varies considerably. The tablet in 
the Nuttallian collection at the British Museum, marked Pandora 
punctata, belongs to this species. Young shells, when quite perfect, 


display faint radiating grooves on the prismatic layer of the flat valve, 
as in Kennerlia. 


This very rare species was only known in England by worn left 
valves in the British Museum, and in Mr. Cuming’s and Mr. Hanley’s 
collections. The first perfect specimens were dredged by Dr. J. G. 
Cooper (Zoologist to the Californian State Survey) at San Pedro. 
A young shell, sent by him to the Smithsonian Institution, displays 
a dentition agreeing in the main with C. ¢rilineata. In the flat 
valve, the central and anterior teeth are close together and nearly 
parallel ; the anterior short, nearly obsolete ; the middle long and 
sharp, corresponding with the long, sharp tooth in the convex valve, 
which points to the outside of the anterior scar, instead of to the 
middle, as in C. trilineata. The (posterior) clavicle-tooth in the fiat 
valve is longer than in the Eastern species, with the cartilage on it 
for two-fifths of the length. In C. trilineata it lies by the side, nearly 
the whole way. The posterior margin of the convex valve fits between 
the clavicle and the margin of the flat valve. The ossicle is remark- 
ably long and thin. The punctures are extremely conspicuous even 
in this young, transparent, and papyraceous specimen ; and, what is 
more peculiar, the dried remains of the animal are covered with 
minute pearl-shaped grains of shelly matter corresponding with them.

The ‘“posterior”’ dilated side of Sowerby is the “anterior’’ of 
Hanley. The species was constituted from a “very few specimens, 
all of them much worn down, as if they had been used as ornaments.”’ 
The hinge therefore may not have been accurately observed. They 
were part of the Humphrey collection, and perhaps from the Califor- 
nian region. Judging from the shape (for no type has been disco- 
vered), it may be identical with C. punctata, Conr.

Prof. Adams’s ‘‘ appropriate name suggested by Dr. Gould ”’ being 
calculated to mislead, 1 have thought it necessary to change it. 


Most of the original diagnosis must also be dropped, the parts above 
quoted being all that it is desirable to retain. The present descrip- 
vion is written from notes and drawings made on a careful examiua- 
tion of the broken type. The lines of growth show that, so far from 
being ‘‘cornute,” the species is remarkable for the absence of beak, 
—the margins being more equally rounded even than in P. obtusa, 
which in shape it somewhat resembles. The hinge is almost exactly 
like that of C. claviculata, jun., but differs in the somewhat greater 
proportionate length of the clavicle, and in the unwonted size and 
sharp pointing of the anterior tooth. The new name has been chosen 
to record this peculiarity, rather than follow the modern custom of 
naming from the author of the mistake. The best naturalists occa- 
sionally err ; but corrections can be made without affixing a false come 
pliment in perpetuity.

The type has not been discovered; the figure and diagnosis only 
relate to the outside; and the habitat is not stated. The genus is 
therefore doubtful; but in shape it resembles the young of C. clavi-

The worn valves in the Cumingian collection do not allow of a 
confident determination of the genus. 

Genus CaLopon®. 

Testa Pandoriformis: valva sinistra dentibus duobus, cicatricem 
adductoris anticam versus radiantibus, lamina infra cavernosa 
gunctis : ossiculo nullo : sinu pallu nullo. 

The shells of this group vary considerably in shape and dentition 
in the different species ; but agree in this, that in the left valve there 
is a kind of tent, formed by a thin laminated roof lying on the top of 
two diverging teeth. It is hard even to guess what is the use of this 
(perhaps unique) structure ; especially as its opening is not towards 
the body of the shell, but directly facing the anterior adductor. It 
is seen at once on opening the typical species, which was well figured 
by Sowerby, Sp. Conch. f. 22. In the aberrant forms it might easily 
be overlooked, and a glass is needed to detect it in small specimens ; 
but if it exists, the shell can be supported on a pin thrust into the 
“hollow tooth.” When more species are known, the group may 
require subdivision, the C. fleruosus especially presenting a marked 
transition to Clidiophora. In that genus the posterior part excels 
in development; in Celodon, the anterior. All the known species 
are from the Eastern seas, but are very seldom seen in collections. 
An enlarged diagnosis of the type species is offered.

Under this species, of which the correct locality appears in the 
name, Mr. Sowerby quotes “a single specimen obtained at Island 
Muerte, W. Columbia, 11 fm., by Mr. Cuming.” The hinge may 
not have been examined. The shell quoted does not now appear in 
the Cumingian collection, and probably belonged to Cldiophora 
claviculata, which in shape resembles the typical Calodon.

This species is the Eastern representative of P. rostrata, as is C. 
delicatulus of P. obtusa. It has the reverse dentition, the central 
tooth being very long, and the anterior short, bridged over to meet 
it at the whole length. In the Borneo shell, which is lar ger, the 
anterior tooth is rather longer, with the front margin of the ceiling 
more incurved; but the differences are probably due to increased 
age only.

from a convex valve only. It clearly belongs to the same section as 
C. flecuosus, and, though the shape is somewhat different, perhaps 
it is only a variety. 

Genus Panpora, Lam. 

It is proposed to limit this genus according to the diagnosis of Sow- 
erby, founded on Lamarck’s. Succeeding naturalists Have adopted 
the diagnosis, while they have included in it species to which it did 
not apply *. It presents a very simple type of hinge, as though the 
Pandorid idea were’ gradually fading away towards Myodora. The 
P. wardiana is the finest species in the group ; but it is scarcely 
typical, having the radiating grooves of the section Aennerlia. The 
Lamarckian type is the Tellina inaequalis of Linneus.

No ossicle has been observed in any of the above species. If it be 
found hereafter in living specimens of the grooved P. radiata and 
P. wardiana, they should be removed to the subgenus. The group 
is not local, as appears to be the case with Calodon and Clidiophora, 
being found in both hemispheres and on both sides of the equator. 

Subgenus KenNnERLIA*. 

Pandora cartilagine ossiculo tenuiore instructa; lamina exte-

The typical species have radiating grooves in the exterior prismatic 
layer of the right valve. These have not been observed in K. gla- 
cialis, but perhaps the specimens are somewhat decorticated. The 
essential character is the possession of an ossicle. ‘This is well deve- 
loped in K. glacialis, but so thin in the other species that it is often 
hidden in dried shells by the contraction of the cartilage. The first 
species in which it was observed (Dr. Kennerley having sent several 
fresh specimens, preserved in alcohol, to the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion) was

from its Northern ally, with which, in the hinge and threading of 
the outer layer, it exactly agrees. The ligament in both species is 
extremely thin, holding the valves together from the umbo to the 
posterior end. The fossil Pandora bilirata, Conr., may prove iden- 
tical with this recent species; but the diagnosis, figure, and type

The form L. evequata is intermediate between the very dif- 
ferent L. porrecta and L. effusa. The Lacune vary so much 
(vide Forbes & Hanley in loco) that, even with a large multitude 
of specimens, it is not easy to state what constitutes a species.

Vancouver, Forbes. 

The specimens sent by Dr. Cooper were all of small size, and, from 
the intercalation of riblets near the margin, clearly immature. They 
presented the incomplete loop of the restricted genus to which Dr. 
Cooper affiliated them. Notwithstanding, as both Davidson and Wood- 
ward state that the young of the British species has the loop similarly 
open, it remained doubtful whether this might not prove conspecific. 
Messrs. Reeve and Hanley unhesitatingly pronounced them to be 
“ caput-serpentis, jun.,” the latter gentleman stating that they pre- 
sented the peculiar form of that species which belongs to the Medi- 
terranean examples. Dr. Forbes, however, was fortunate enough to 



obtain an adult shell, which passed into the Cumingian Collection 
Waving removed the animal matter with great care, the loop was 
found to retain the form seen in the young shell, only perhaps stil’ 
more open. This is the first recent species of the genus which has 
been discovered with a sculptured surface, and affords an instructive 
lesson not to rely on external characters. 

Terebratula unguicula: 1, 2, outside views of Mr. Cuming’s adult specimen, 
natural size: 3, 4, inside views of the upper valve, slightly magnified. 

The outline of the adult is much rounder, and the margin blunter, 
than in 7". exput-serpentis. Inside, the noncompletion of the some- 
what w-shaped loop is a very obvious character. This is large ir 
proportion, extending to about two-fifths of the length and one- 
third of the greatest breadth of the shell. It is bent upwards in the 
middle, as seen from the partly opened valves; with a double wave at 
the sides, as seen from the direction of the opposite valve. Two spurs 
ascend from the crests of the side waves, as though preparing tc 
complete the loop. The similar Terebratella angustata from Japan. 

when of the same size as Dr. Cooper’s specimens, has the loop quite 
continuous *.

This remarkable shell differs trom Jouanettia in having both 
valves equal; from Pholadidea proper in having no coriaceous 
cup, its place being supplied by a flattened prolongation from 
each valve, like a duck’s bill in miniature. In Mr. Lord’s specimen 
(preserved in the British Museum), though the valves are closed, the 
prolongations are widely divergent, as when the bird utters its cheer- 
ful “ quack.’’ The loose, thin epidermis appears to have covered the 
bill as well as the valves. Mr. ‘Tryon had probably not seen a speci- 
men, else he could hardly have affiliated so very different a shell to 
Pholadidea penita. The original specimen is said to have come from

A very distinct species, in shape and hinge not unlike Callista, but 
without lunule. It is more rounded and flatter than the three ty- 
pical Californian species, and known at once by the very small mantle- 
bend. From four to six blunt riblets are seen on each of the very 



blunt waves of growth. The shell was sent me as from Dr. Forbes’s 
Vancouver collections, and is so quoted in the Br. Assoc. Rep. 1863, 
p- 607; but Mr. Cuming subsequently stated his belief that it came 
from Japan. It may be allowable to state that many of the species 
included in Saxidomus by authors are more correctly rough forms of 
Tapes, of the decussata-type; the true Saaidomi differing from that 
genus (as Callista does from Venus) in having an additional pseudo- 
lateral anterior tooth. This is very evident in the young shell, which 
has a much rounder outline than the adult, and can scarcely be 
distinguished trom Callista, except by the absence of lunule.

Dracnoses oF New Species anp A New Genus or Mor- 
THE British Museum. By Puiuip P. Carrenter, B.A., 


After the publication of the British Museum Mazatlan Catalogue, 
the backs of several fresh Spondylus-valves were examined by Mr. 
R. D. Darbishire and myself. Among the specimens were several 
tvhich were deemed worthy of being added to the national collection; 
they were deposited there, with a MS. appendix to the Catalogue, 
in 1858. As it is not judged necessary to print this separately, I 
have (with the permission of Dr. Gray) transcribed what should be 
placed on record, in hopes that it may not be judged out of place 
in the ‘ Proceedings.’ Those who use the Mazatlan Catalogue are 
requested to observe not only the corrections in the Appendix, 
pp- 547-552, but also those made in the Review of Professor C. B. 
Adams’s Panama Catalogue, P. Z. 8. 1863, p. 339; and in the 
British Association Reports, 1863, pp. 543 et seg. The numbers, 
both of species and of tablets, are continued from the Mazatlaa 
Catalogue, and correspond with those in the Report. The student 
of the Gulf fauna should also consult the account of Mr. Xantus’s 



Cape St. Lucas shells in the ‘Annals Nat. Hist.’ 1864, and in the 
Report, pp. 616-626 *.

Mr. Hanley kindly sent for my inspection a perfect pair (as 

* Tepton”), which he had found nestling in a burrow in Spondylus. 
The hinge more resembles Cyclus (Lam.) than any other known 
genus. Its great peculiarity is, that the cardinal teeth, instead of 
radiating from the umbo, fall in the curve of the hinge-line, as 
though uniting the lateral teeth. The shell is too thin (being deeply 
indented within by the concentric waves) to make out the pallial 
line ; but no trace of sinus is visible. It may therefore rank, provi- 
sionally, under Kelliad@, although in other respects its athnities 
appear to be with Gdalia and Cooperella. The hgament appears 
little more than a prolongation of the epidermis. Beside the trans- 
verse cardinal teeth, there is in each valve a curved line, slightly 
raised. like the end of a finger-nail, which bounds what would be the 
lunule in other shells.

Only one specimen was found of this beautiful little species, the 
first known from America. It looks like a Velutina crossed by 
sharp ribs in the direction of the slanting mouth. In the first whorl 
wie ribs are very close. It then assumes its normal sculpture, but 
there is nearly a whorl before there is any trace of incision. This 
appears to have begun as a slit, which was afterwards closed up. A 
band, marked off by ten transverse ribs showing stages of growth, 
encircles the shell as far as the hole, which is long and somewhat 
:eetangular; but there is no band between the hole and the outer 
lin. The shell furnishes a complete transition to Rimuda. It is 
preserved on tablet 2532.

The fortunate discovery of a perfect young specimen and some 
adult shells in the shell-washings of Professor Adams’s collection 
enables us to explain the anomalies described in the Mazatlan Cata- 
logue, where the solitary dead shell was referred, with doubt, to 
Odostomia, in consequence of its truncated apex. It was not pos- 
sible to recognize in it Professor Adams’s “ Cingula,”’ since that was 
described as having the apex “‘ subacute,”’ and the angular base and 
continuous peritreme were not mentioned. The nuclear whorls are 
sculptured as in Alaba supralirata ; but the vertex, instead of being 
persistent as in that genus, appears to be always decollated in the 
adult. The shell has the peculiar glossy texture of Diala.

Tablet 2539 contains a small shell, :035 across, consisting of 33 
smooth, flattened, sinistral whorls; with a distinct suture, but not 
vmbilicated. In a larger specimen (unfortunately lost), under the 
microscope this sinistral vertex appeared turned completely upside 
down, with more than half a whorl of an orbicular shell, white, 
sculptured like Vitrinella, with a very strong peripherical keel, and 
other smaller keels, decussated by radiating ruge. This mode of 
growth is exactly as in the young Torinia ; but the adult must have 
been very distinct from any known species, and perhaps did not 
belong to any described genus.

It appears that Mr. Gaskoin was not acquainted with Phi- 
lippi’s species. which had not then reached the Cumingian Collec- 
tion; as he pronounced M. Reigen’s specimen to be new, and sug- 
gested the specific name in the Mazatlan Catalogue. It would have 
avoided a double synonymy, could the name tenzata have been re- 
tained for the Samarang shell, and Mr. Gaskom’s for this. The 
Cape St. Lucas shells vary as above in heated. 


Maz. Cat. no. 650, p.509. Perfect specimens of this singular 
species having been found at Cape St. Lueas by Mr. Xantus, the

Unfortunately for those who do not like to remove the non-tes- 
taceous portion from their Chitons, as they do from their other shells, 
the mantle-margin by no means affords a safe clue to the structure 
of the valves. Among the species of the genus Ischnochiton, Gray, 



(=Lepidopleurus, Add.,) known by the sharp incisor-teeth lying 
within a projecting lip, there are three types of mantle-margin, 
which may be conveniently separated as subgenera, to aid in the 
difficult task of describing and identifying species. The typical 
forms, for which the name Ischnochiton should be retained, have the 
scales somewhat chaffy, and very finely striated. J. magdalensia 
and J. sanguineus well represent the group. But another series have 
the mantle-seales imbricate and strong, as in Chiton, Gray, (= Lo- 
phyrus, Add.,) from which they cannot be distinguished without 
dissection. For this Messrs. Adams’s name Lepidopleurus may be 
retained in a restricted sense. It is uncertain what NRisso’s original 
genus was meant to include: his diagnosis applies to all Chitons 
with distinct side-areas and scaly margins. 

A third group, separated by Dr. Gray in his ‘ Guide,’ p. 182, as 
having the ‘ mantle-scales minute, granular,” has been nanred 77a- 
chydermon: it abounds in the Californian region. 

The specimens of L. adamsii were found among the duplicates 
named Chiton dispar by the Professor; one was attached to Discina

The outside of this shell so much resembles the young of Chitox 

(Lophyrus) stokesii, that specimens may have been distributed under 
that name. Very few individuals were found.

The central valves in this species are normal; but the posterior 

valve offers a transition towards Callochiton, the outside being con- 
cave posteriorly, the insertion-teeth short and the eaves callous.

With a strong general resemblance to I. e/enensis, the differences 
in detail in the only two specimens examined, as above stated, ap- 
pear of specific importance. If only varietal, it is equally important 
to notice how much change is tolerated by the habits of the animal. 
It may be the shell called Chiton clathratus by Prof. Adams, of which 
there were no duplicates to compare. It offers a still more marked 
transition to Callochiton, the margin of the posterior valve being 
somewhat pectinated by the great projection of the ribs.

As I have seen no published diagnosis of the very peculiar type of 
insertion-plates observed in this species, which has hitherto been too 
rare to allow working naturalists an opportunity of dissection, I have 
given a minute description. The plates of insertion, as well as the 
exterior eaves, are scalloped by the strong ribs, and alternate with 
them. In the posterior valve the eaves are flattened outwards, in 
closely appressed layers, the blunt, ill-developed insertion-teeth 
lying flat upon them. The valves easily separate from the mantle, 
when immersed in water. Outside, the species is easily recognized 
by the two strong ribs of the diagonal areas, the central pitted in 
somewhat branching rows, and the ribs on the curiously flattened 
posterior valve resembling a clenched fist.

There is no described west-tropical species to which these shells 
ean be affiliated, unless they prove to be a very delicate variety of 
A. floceata, Rve. Unfortunately the Panama limpets have never 
been collected in sufficient numbers to make out their specific limits 
satisfactorily. The names here given may stand as species or va- 
rieties, according to future elucidation. In shape and texture, but 
not in colour or sculpture, these shells’ resemble 4. fascicularis ; in 
the latter respects, 4. strigatella. They were named “ tenera, Ad.” 
by Dr. Dohrn, but are sutticiently distinct from that West-Indian

Had this form been brought from the China Seas, it might have 
been taken for the young of 4. biradiata, Rve. From its solidity, 
however, its rough exterior, and its callous interior, it appears to 
be adult. It is barely possible that it may develope into A. vesper- 
tina. It differs from the young of 4. subrotundata in being much 
thicker and less spotted with the green tint.

DraGNnosts oF NEw Species oF MoLuusks, FROM THE WES? 

LECTED BY THE Rev. J. Rowe tz, oF SAN Francisco. By 
Puiie P. Carpenter, B.A., Pu.D. 

Of the new species quoted in the “ Supplementary Report on the 
Present State of our Knowledge of the Mollusca of the West Coas* 
of North America,”’ published in the Transactions of the British As 
sociation, 1863, pp. 517-686, the principal portion (namely, those 
dredged by Dr. J. G. Cooper, Zoologist to the Californian State 
Geological Survey) are described in the ‘ « Proceedings of the California 
Acad. Nat. Sciences,’ for 1864-65; those dredged i in Puget Sound, 
during the U. S. North Pacific Boundary Survey, by the late Dr. 
Kennerley, are described in the ‘Journal of the Philadelphia Acad. 
Nat. Se.’ for the present year. The species obtained by the natu- 
ralists of the British Survey are described in three papers by Dr. 
Baird and myself, P. Z. S. 1863-65. The new species sent by 
Mr. J. Xantus from Cape St. Lucas, and by Mr. J. G. Swan from 
Neeah Bay, appear in the ‘Ann. and Mag. Nat. Hist.,” 1864-65. In 
the same Journal are described the new species which I found in 
Col. Jewett’s collection. Those sent to Dr. Gould from the same col- 
lection had been previously analyzed in the ‘ Proc. Zool. Soc.’ 1856. 
The above are the principal sources of fresh knowledge; but a number 
of species from the Californian province, which do not range under 
any of these heads, will be found in the ‘Journal de Conchyliologie’ 
for the current year. 

In separate papers communicated to the Zoological Society are the 
diagnoses of additional species from Prof. Adams’s Panama and from 
M. Reigen’s Mazatlan collections. The remaining species, from the 
tropical province, are embodied in the present paper. The types 
(unless otherwise stated) are in the Museum of the Smithsonian

T. dombeyi, Lam. (= Scrobicularia producta, Cpr. P. Z.8. 1855, 
p- 230), but is easily recognized by the strictly Tellinoid ligament 
and anterior lateral tooth, “by the posterior portion being pinched 
instead of waved, and by the junction of the pallial sinus ‘with the 
Opposite scar. By the same characters it is distinguished from 7, 
tersa, Gld., which closely resembles 8. dombey?, var., in Mus. Cum. 
Like many other Tellens, it has a white and a pink ae The 
name was printed by an oversight in Brit. Assoc. Rep. 1863, p. 669, 
as A. amplectans ; but as it was unaccompanied by a diagnosis, and 
does not describe the shell, no confusion will arise from reverting 
to the name first given.

The outline somewhat resembles Cryptodon; but the aspect 
is more that of Verticordia, while the minute subumbonal pit 
is suggestive of Opis. The shell is sexpartite ; the portion between 
the anterior rib and the lunule resembles a fourth rib, while the 
projecting lunule and the posterior wing are quite distinct from the 
body of the shell. The specimen sent by Mr. Rowell to the Smith- 
sonian Institution was completely smashed. ‘The diagnosis is written 
from a perfect shell sent by Dr. Newcomb to Mr. Cuming.

Dr. Newberry’s specimens agree in most essential respects with 
“ Trochus lima, Phil.,” in C. B. Ad. Pan. Shells, no. 276, which 
appears identical with the shells marked * Ziz ciphinus antonii, Koch, 
N. Zealand,” in Mus. Cuming. The Acapulcan shells are quite 
flat, while those from Panama are for the most part shouldered as 
in C. eximium, Rve. (= C. versicolor, Mke. Maz. Cat. no. 289). 
However, there is no little variation among the Professor’s speci- 
mens of C. dima, and some are so slightly shouldered that the Aca- 
puican form may be a local variety.

their own species having the coppery flavour which Americans dis- 
like in the British species. From the outside of the valves, Mr. 
Rowell obtained this and many other interesting species.

ture being continued to the periphery. One specimen only wag

the pale colour and delicate sculpture and imbrication may arise 
from a deep-water station, as is seen in similar European shells.

them have been fixed by subsequent explorers. Being generally 
worn beach-specimens, the diagnoses have been written (where- 
ever practicable) from perfect shells, and especially from the

P. compta, with a large proportion of the small shells of the

As this belongs to a group of closely allied species of Nassoid

are larger, and have the remarkable nucleus more perfect, than any 
of the recent shells yet seen. In appearance it scarcely differs

This beautiful and unique shell was probably from Panama ; 
but there was no locality-mark. It is remarkable for its deep 
furrows and the suddenly shortened and spirally sculptured 
base. It is much larger and broader than the northern C. Virgo, 
and differs in details of sculpture.

Diagnoses de Moliusques nouveaux proyenant

PAR Puitie P. Carpenter, B. A., Po. D. 


D'aprés les lois des Etats-Unis, tous les objets d'histoire 

ralurelle recueillis dans le cours des expéditions faites par 

- — 130 — 

les Etats deviennent la propriété de Vinstitution Smithso- 
nienne, qui est autorisée, de plus, a échanger les doubles. 
Celte institution, si bien dirigée par le professeur Henry, 
qui en est le secrélaire, n’a pas pour objet principal soa 
seul agrandissement; elle est établie pour « laccroisse- 
ment et la propagation de la science parma les hommes, » 
c'est-a-dire qu'elle embrasse toutes les nations, Dans |’é- 
change des doubles, on n’a pas pour but d’oblenir un quid 
pro quo, mais plutot d’envoyer les échantillons 4 quelque 
endroit ou ils seront plus utiles pour l'avancement de la 
science. Le revenu de l’institution ne suftisant pas pour 
avoir a poste fixe des naturalistes chargés de classer et de 
décrire au besoin les objets d'histoire naturelle de ce 
musce, on envoie ces objets en communication a des natu- 
ralistes des Etats-Unis ou d'autres pays, selon leur spécia- 
lité, en vue d’arriver 4 déterminer les espéces et de faire 
choix des échantillons pour leur collection permanente et 
pour les échanges. En conformité de ce principe, les di- 
recteurs de Vinstitulion m’ont transmis en Angleterre 
toutes les coquilles recueillies sur la céle ouest d’Amé- 
rique. Je les ai soigneusement comparées avec les types 
de la collection Cuming et du musée britannique; et, par 
suite de cet examen comparatif joint a celui de mes 
propres matériaux, je me suis trouvé dans la nécessité de 
décrire a peu pres trois cents especes ou variétés locales, 
en dehors de celles que j'ai publiées antérieurement dans 
mon catalogue des coquilles de Mazatlan. 

On trouvera des renseignements sur ces espéces et sur 
toutes les sources originales d’information concernant le 
méme sujet, dans mon «Supplementary Report on the 
present stale of our knowledge of the Mollusca of the 
West coast of N. America, » écrit a la demande de I’ Asso- 

ciation britannique pour l’avancement de la science, et 

— 431 — 

publié dans ses Transactions pour l'année 1863 (p. 517- 
686). Aux pages 656-664, on peut consulter une table dis- 
posce de maniére 4 faire voir d'un coup d’eil toutes les 
especes de Ja région de Vancouver et de Californie, jus- 
qu ici trés-peu connues, avec tous les endroils ou on Jes 
a recueillies, daprés les renseignements fournis par les 
principaux collecteurs. Dans les mémes pages on lrouvera 
une description trés-succincte des especes qui sont nou- 
velles ou peu connues : quant aux diagnoses latines, elles 
ont été publiées dans divers journaux scientifiques, selon 
la source de provenance des espéces qu’elles concernent. 
Ainsi, par exemple. on doit en chercher le plus grand 
nombre, qui ont ¢té draguées par le docteur Cooper, lors 
du Geological Survey de l Etat de Californie, dans les Pro- 
ceedings of the California Academy, 1864-5. Les espéces 
draguées par le docteur Kennerley au Pugef-Sound se 
trouvent décrites dans le Journal of the Philadelphia 
Academy, 4865. Les especes trouvées par le colonel Je- 
wett, en Californie, ont élé publiées dans les Annals of 
natural History, 1864-5; celles qui ont élé recueillies par 
M. Swan et les jeunes Indiens, de l’instruction desquels il 
est chargé, a la baie de Neeah (vis-a-vis l'ile de Vancou- 
ver), et par M. Xantus, au cap St.-Lucas, se trouvent 
décrites dans le méme recueil périodique (4864). Dans 
les Proceedings of the zoological Society (1863, p. 559- 
569), on trouvera nn examen critique du Panama cata- 
logue du professeur C. B. Adams, fait d’aprés ses échan- 
tillons typiques ; et, pendant le cours de la présente an- 
née, le méme journal doit publier les especes nouvelles 
de la région tropicale, recueillies par MM. Reigen, 
C. B. Adams, etc. 

Profitant de Ja bienveillance avec laquelle l’éditeur du 

Journal de Conchyliologie a bien youlu m’ouvrir les co- 


lonnes de son recueil scientifique, je me propose de don- 
ner, dans cet article, les diagnoses des espéces nouvelies 
de Californie, qui ne se trouvent pas décrites dans les mé- 
moires cités plus haut. Je me trouve dans I impossibilité 
d’en donner en méme temps les figures, attendu que j'ai 
déjarestitué les échantillons typiques a Vinstitution Smith- 
sonienne; mais cette absence de figures est moins regret- 
table, si l'on considére qu'elle n’est que momentanée, et 
que les espéces en question doivent étre prochainement 
dessinées et gravées sur bois par le savant artiste, M. le 
D' W. Stimpson, pour le Manuel des Mollusques de la céte 
ouest d Amérigue, Gue je prépare en ce moment, a la de- 
mande del institution Smithsonienne (4). Lorsqu’il existe 
des doubles de ces diverses espéces, on les trouvera ou 
dans le Musée britannique ou dans la collection Cuming.

Celte petite coquille porte le nom de « Mera Gouldu, 
Hanl., » dans le musée Cuming et dans les Genera de 
MM. Adams (t. II, p. 396), mais je n’ai pu parvenir aen 
trouver de diagnose publiée. Sur quelques-uns des échan- 
tillons, on peut trouver le commencement d'une dent la- 
térale postérieure. Ainsi la différence entre les sous- 
genres Mara et Angulus de MM. Adams est de trés-peu 
d’importance. Cette espéce offre l’aspect de l'état jeune da 
Lutricola Dombeyi, Lamarck (2), mais elle en différe par 
la charniére. 

(1) Les dimensions des espéces sont données en pouces an- 
glais, dont chacun = 2.53 centimétres. 

(2) Pour cette section de Scrobicularia, MM. Adams proposent 
le vocable Capsa; ce qui fait grandement confusion, Capsa élant 
un nom de Lamarck, synonyme, il est vrai, d’/phigenia, Schuma- 
cher, mais néanmoins trés-usite. Je propose de reconstituer ie 
genre ancien Lutricola, de Blainville, pris dans un sens restreint, 
pour ce groupe, intermédiaire entre les vrais Scrobicularia et les 
Macoma, ainsi qu’il suit ;

individus des mers plus chaudes ont Pair d'¢tre trés-dis- 
tincts; mais, d’aprés le docteur Cooper, quia une grande 
expérience de la maticre, ce ne sont que des vari¢tés. Je 

ne pouvais pas prendre pour nom spéccifique celui que le 
professeur Nuttall avait donné en manuscrit a une forme 
accidenielle. Quant aux autres formes, assez constantes 
dans leurs diverses localilés, je leur ai donné des noms 
qui pourront servir a les designer soit comme espcces, 
soit comme variétés, lorsque, plus tard, la connais- 
sance dun plus grand nombre d’individus permettra 
d’avoir une opinion definitive en ce qui les concerne. La 
varidté rufoides a beaucoup de l'aspect de 1'O. Virginica 
(Maz. Cat., n°. 212). Elle était désignée sous le nom « O. 
?rufa » parle docteur Gould; mais je suis porté a croire 
que l’espéce de Lamarck est une variété des Huitres atlan-

pede elongato, ovali, planato ; branchia minima. 

Ce genre est intermédiaire entre les 4cmea et les Scur- 
i ria. Dans les Acmea, Je manteau est simple; dans les 
| Scurria, il est garni, sur toute sa circonférence, de papilles 
} qui, a premiére vue, offrent l’apparence des branchies des 
vraies Pafelles; chez les Lottia, on trouve ces papilles sur 
le corps, mais non sur la téte de l’animal. De plus, la 
branchie, qui est ordinairement allongée et en forme de 
plume chez les Acmea, et triangulaire chez les Scurria, 
est trés-petite dans le genre qui nous occupe. II serait 
prématuré de vouloir fixer définitivement les caractéres 
-conchyliologiques dau genre Lottia, quoique le type soit 
trés-différent des Patelles ordinaires ; car il est possible 
que quelques-unes des espcces que l'on considére actuel- 
lement comme des Pafelles se trouvent étre des Lotta, 
lorsqu’on aura eu l'occasion d’ observer leurs animaux. 
On sait qu'il y a quatre noms employés pour désigner 
les Patelles A branchie de petite dimension. Acmaa est le 
premier en date, ayant été publié dans l'appendice du 
voyage de Kotzebue. J’aurais voulu conserver pour ce 
groupe fe vocable générique Teclura, employé (apres 

| Milne-Edwards) par Gray et MM. Adams: mais je trouve

que Sowerby sen., dans son Gen-ra, a figuré Vespéece 
originale comme type de son « Lottia, Gray. » 

C’est le docteur Cooper qui, le premier, a observé et 
signalé les particularités de l'animal; mais la diagnose 
que ie viens de donner est le résultat des études du doc- 
teur Alcock, qui a succédé au capitaine Brown comme 
curateur du Musée de Manchester. Il a fait Vanatomie de 
presque toutes les Patelles de la cote ouest d’ Amérique; 
mais je ne veux pas anticiper sur ses découvertes. Voici la

[From the ANNALS AND Macazine or Natura Utstory 
for April 1866. | 







Tue study of the recent and tertiary mollusks of the west coast 
of America is peculiarly interesting and instructive, for the fol- 
lowing reasons. It is the largest unbroken line of coast in the 
world, extending from 60° N. to 55° S., without any material 
salience exeept the promontory of Lower California. Being 
flanked by an almost continuous series of mountain-ranges, the 
highest in the New World, it might reasonably be supposed that 
the coast-line had been separated from the Atlantic from remote 
ages. The almost entire dissimilarity of its faunas from those 
of the Pacific Islands, from which it is separated by an immense 
breadth of deep ocean from north to south, marks it out as con- 
taining the most isolated of all existing groups of species, both in 
its tropical and its temperate regions. When we go back in time, 
we are struck by the entire absence of anything like the boreal 
drift, which has left its ice-scratchings and arctic shells over so 
large a portion of the remaining temperate regions of the northern 
hemisphere, and also by the very limited remains of what can 
fairly be assigned to the Eocene age. The great bulk of the 
land on the Pacific slope of North America (so far as it is not 
of volcanic origin) appears to have been deposited during the 
Miocene epoch. Here and there only are found beds whose 
fossils agree in the main with those now living in the neigh- 
bouring seas. To trace the correspondences and differences 
21 : 321 

2 Dr. P. P. Carpenter on Pleistocene Fossils 

between these and their existing representatives may be expected 
to present results analogous to those now being worked out 
with such discerning accuracy from the various newer beds of 
modern Europe. 

The first collection of Californian ae seen in the east was 
made near Sta. Barbara by Col. E. Jewett in 1849; but no ac- 
count was published of them before the list in the British Asso- 
ciation Report (1863), p.539. They consist of forty-six species, 
of which twenty-nine are known to be now living in the Cali- 
fornian seas, and others may yet be found there. The followi ing 
ten are Vancouver species, some of which may travel down to 
the northern part of California :— 

Margarita pupilla, Priene Oregonensis, 
Galerus fastigiatus, Trophon Orpheus, 
Bittium filosum, Chrysodomus carinatus, 
Lacuna solidula, C. tabulatus, and 
Natica clausa, C. dirus. 

Some of these are distinctly boreal shells, as are also Crepidula 
grandis (of which Col. Jewett obtained a giant, 35 inches long, 
and which now lives on a smaller scale in Kamtschatka) and 
Trophon tenuisculptus (whose relations will be presently poimted 
out). So far, then, we have a condition of things differing from 
that of the present seas, somewhat as the Red Crag differs from 
the Coralline. But in the very same bed (and the shells are in 
such beautiful condition that they all appear to have lived on 
the spot, which was perhaps suddenly caused to emerge by 
voleanic agency) are found not only tropical species which even 
yet struggle northwards into the same latitudes (as Chione 
suecincta), ‘but also species now found only in southern regions, 
as Cardium graniferum and Pecten floridus. Besides these, 
the following, unknown except in this bed, are of a distinctly 

tropical type, viz. : 

Opalia, var. insculpta. Pisania fortis. 
Chrysallida, sp. 

From a single collection made only at one spot, in a few 
weeks, and from the very fragmentary information to be derived 
from the collections of the Pacific Railway surveys (described by 
Mr. Conrad, and tabulated in the Brit. Assoc. Report, 1863, 
pp. 589- -596), it would be premature to draw inferences. We 
shall await with great interest the more complete account to be 
given by Mr. Gabb in the Report of the California Geological 
Survey. With the greatest urbanity, that gentleman has ‘sent 
his doubtful Pleistocene fossils to the writer, to be compared 
with the living fauna; but it would be unfair here to give any 


from Sta. Barbara, California. 3 

account of them, except that they confirm the foregoing state- 
ments in their general character. 
The following are diagnoses of the new species in Col. Jewett’s 
Turritella Jewettit. 

T. testa satis tereti, haud tenui, cinerea rufo-fuseo tincta; anfr. 
subplanatis, suturis distinctis ; lirulis distantibus (quarum t. jun.

parum angulata; apertura subquadrata; labro tenui, modice si-

This species comes nearest to 7. sanguinea, Rve., from the 
Gulf, but differs in the faintness of the sculpture. Mr. Cassidy’s 

specimens may be washed fossils, or very poor recent shells. 

Bittium Pasperum.

Mr. Gabb informs me that his Turbonilla aspera is a Bittium. 
Unfortunately the type is not accessible; and as the diagnosis 
would fit several closely allied species, it cannot be said with 
precision to which it rightfully applies. As this is the com- 
monest of the group, it is presumed that it is the “ Turbonilla” 
intended. Should the type, however, be recovered, and prove 
distinct, this shell should take the name of B. rugatum, under 
which I wrote the diagnosis, and which was unfortunately 
printed in the Brit. Assoc. Report, p.539. The fossil specimens 
are in much better condition than the recent shells as yet dis- 

Bittium armillatum.

The sculpture resembles Cerithiopsis; but the columella is

Very closely related to O. erenatoides, now living at Cape 
St. Lucas, and, with it, to the Portuguese O. crenata. It 1s 
. a ’ = . . 
quite possible that the three forms had a common origin. 

Trophon tenuisculptus. 

T. testa 7. Barvicensi simili, sed sculptura minus extante; vertice

recta, vix clausa; labro acutiore, postice et intus incrassato, denti- 
bus cire. v. munito; labio conspicuo, levi; columeila torsa. 

Hab. Sta. Barbara, Pleistocene formation (Jewett). 

This very elegant shell is like the least-sculptured forms of 
T. Barvicensis, trom which it appears to differ in its extremely 
small nucleus. It is very closely related to 7. fimbriatulus, A. Ad., 
from Japan, but differs in texture, and is regarded by Mr. Adams 
as distinct. It stands on the confines of the genus, there being 
a slight columellar twist, as in Peristernia. 

Pisania fortis.

V., postea X., in spira monstrantur), subeequalibus, anticis majorie

bus; canali recurvata; lacuna umbilicali magna; labro intus 
erebrilirato ; labio conspicuo, spiraliter rugose lirato. 

Hab. Sta Barbara, Pleistocene formation (Jewett). 

Col. Jewett’s single specimen is in very fine condition, and is 
confirmed by a frazment obtained by Mr. Gabb, the paleeonto- 
logist to the California State Survey. Although resembling 
Purpura aperta and congeners in the irregular rugose folds of 
the labium, and Siphonalia in the strongly bent canal, Mr. H. 
Adams considers that its affinities are closest with the Cantharus 
eroup of Pisania. That genus is extremely abundant in the 
tropical fauna, but does not now live in California. It is the 
only distinctly tropical shell in the whole collection; and its 
presence, along with so many boreal species and ty pes, appears 
somewhat anomalous, like the appearance of Voluta and Cassi- 
daria in the Crag ame It is distinguished from the extreme 
forms of P. insignis by having the spiral liree pretty equally dis- 
tributed over the early whorls, by the close internal ribbing of 
the labrum, by the absence of the stout posterior parietal tooth, 
and by the great development of the columellar folds. 

Note.— Unfortunately, during the long interval which has elapsed 
between the transmission of the MS. and receipt of the proof, the 
types have been returned to the owner, and (with the remainder of 
Col. Jewett’s invaluable collection of fossils) have become the pro- 
perty of a college in New York State. As they are packed in boxes, 
and at present inaccessible, I am unable to give the measurements ; 
but the unique specimens were drawn on wood by Mr. eeyerby for 
the Smithsonian Institution.—P. P. C., Montreal, Feb. 22, 1866.
